Show the next generation how your field innovates and impacts the future by exhibiting at TechFest.

Seeking technology professionals that love to share what they do.

We are looking inspire teens by showcasing new innovations and technologies, and to offer students the opportunity to interact with STEM professionals such as yourself.  Exhibitors should bring hands-on demos or interactive devices to illustrate STEM principles. Demos need to be safe for middle and high school students (not contain any hazardous materials) and be able to be completed in a timely manner. Be prepared to discuss your educational background and the type of training required in your STEM field.
