Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the largest STEM outreach event in Phoenix. The fourth annual Connect2STEM is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018, and we’re looking for exhibitors from University of Arizona departments.

Connect2STEM is meant to energize children Pre-K through high school about science, technology, engineering, math and medicine. Last year, more than 6,500 children and their parents participated in the 100+ hands-on activities offered by exhibitors. This year, we’re expecting 10,000 guests, and we’d love to have UA represented in a big way.

Exhibitors need to provide an interactive tabletop experience or activity geared toward youth.

Last year’s exhibits included the robotic daVinci Surgery System, where guests tried their hand at robotic surgery. Participants also dissected sheep and cow brains, practiced their suturing skills, completed chemistry experiments and played video games.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Register today on the Exhibitor Sign-up Form. A confirmation email will provide a link to register your exhibit’s volunteers.
  • Learn more about Exhibitor Information (parking/logistics).
  • The deadline to register volunteers is Friday, December 1, 2017.
  • When you register, you can secure a seat on the bus to Phoenix.

Registration ensures that your organization will be included on the event map and website, and we’ll start promoting your organization on social media. Online registration is fast and easy!

The event is free to exhibitors and attendees. Register Today! The deadline to register as an exhibitor is Nov. 1.
