The DC STEM Network is proud to host and manage the Elementary DC STEM Fair on June 4, 2016 at the Takoma Education Campus (7010 Piney Branch Road NW). This year’s Elementary Fair will include student, family, and educator STEM learning opportunities, making the STEM Fair a great opportunity to engage the DC community in STEM. The DC STEM Fair will bring in students from public, private, and parochial schools to showcase their STEM Fair projects, community partners to showcase their STEM programs and learning opportunities, and families and educators to participate in STEM community workshops.

Help make the 2016 DC STEM Fair a Success!

  • Register student projects. Teachers may register their top three 3rd-5th grade student projects online. Please review the instructions before starting the application. A wait list for two additional projects per school is available. The priority registration deadline is May 20, 2016.
  • Submit a proposal for a STEM Community Workshop.  To connect parents, siblings, and teachers at the STEM Fair to STEM learning opportunities they can do outside of the traditional classroom, the DC STEM Fair is soliciting proposals for interactive workshops.

Volunteers commit to one or both volunteer shifts the day of or before the Fair. The Fair is seeking volunteers through May 20, 2016.
  • Exhibit at the interactive STEM Expo. The DC STEM Fair will include a STEM Expo. Private and public organizations, institutions of higher education, and STEM-oriented programs are invited to submit an application to present an interactive activity at the Expo, held concurrently with the DC STEM Fair. Space is limited, so register today! Registration for exhibitors will close on May 20, 2016.
