The purpose of the Technology Fair is to raise awareness and help promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers among college, middle and high school students. We have invited and received confirmation from industry leaders to speak and provide interactive exhibitions around the innovations that their companies have to offer. The event will feature companies representing various technical industries, elected officials, educational administrators, and hundreds of students. This will be a ground breaking opportunity for the youth in the local community to network with STEM professionals and learn about rewarding careers and potential future internships.
There will be performances by the local marching band. Technical exhibitions will include robotics, exotic cars, virtual reality companies and many more! More than half dozen technical gifts will be raffled including drones, tablets, programming kits, and more!
