Thank you to our newest Festival Sponsors! 

Across the country, child and teen prodigies in science are being recognized for their achievements as exciting young innovators in a wide range of endeavors – from bioengineering and green technology to entrepreneurial startups. Festival 2014 is excited to announce that it has begun recruiting some of the best of these amazing wunderkinds for its newly-formed Youth Advisory Board to further help inspire other students in STEM! Here are just some of the young innovators who have been appointed to our board: 18 year-old Param Jaggi, founder of EcoViate, an emerging green-tech startup; Jack Andraka, who at 15 developed a diagnostic test that detects pancreatic cancer more accurately, quicker and cheaper than existing tests; and Sara Volz, the 17 year-old who, from a laboratory in her bedroom, invented a method to boost the natural oil content of algae for alternative fuel development! 

The Festival has partnered with Michigan Technological University (Michigan Tech) to support the University's Mind Trekkers traveling science festival as it heads out across America. The team recently traveled to the Bay Area Science Festival on Saturday November 2nd. The team members experienced a trip to remember and shared with us the story of their special weekend of traveling for science!
