The goal of the TechFest program is to expose school-age children and their parents to the STEMM fields(science, technology, engineering math and medical technology) with the hope to influence the children to enter careers in these fields. While we cannot measure the number of students who ultimately select STEM careers, we can measure the number of students who attended. A chart of this year’s attendance is below.
