Challenge on November 6
To that end, the Festival has gathered information about STEM events happening around the state into a central calendar where members of the public can look for events of interest happening near them. "The Festival," the website says, "provides STEM opportunities to all of Maryland without requiring them to travel significant distances."

STEM is a key part of our ongoing programming, especially for children and teens. Customers are also encouraged to drop in anytime to explore our STEM stations for children. Caregivers and children can also take advantage of our Go! Kits, which provide a mini-iPad, books, and specialized toys to explore selected STEM themes. Go! Kits are available for two ages of children: Little Explorer kits are intended for ages 3–6 and Young Voyager kits are designed for kids in grades 3–6.
STEM is an important and growing field that touches every aspect of modern life from entertainment to communication to medicine and beyond. We are excited to work with the Maryland STEM Festival in their goal to “give Maryland a vibrant STEM economy to make us a national leader in the 21st century economy.” Please join us!
