Families are invited to attend the Dubuque Area Family STEM Festival on Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Clarke University, Kehl Center Gym. The festival is free and open to the public.
The goals of the festival are to promote, inspire and engage youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities and to introduce children and parents to STEM careers in their local communities.
Exhibits will feature interactive STEM activities for students and their families. Attendees can explore the galaxy by taking a tour through our solar system in a modern planetarium. In addition, they can control a robot, operate a flight simulator, discover healthcare fields, conduct exciting scientific experiments, and much more!
