No question about it: Exhibitors play a vital role in the Festival's mission to present exciting hands-on experiences in science to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
STEM organizations and institutions can help us make the next Expo experience -- set for April 16-17, 2016 in Washington, D.C. -- even greater for students and other attendees by being an "Early Bird" to sign up as a new or returning Exhibitor. The Festival Expo is known as the largest celebration of STEM in the country, and the 2016 event is expected to our biggest "Super Bowl of STEM" gathering ever, giving Exhibitors an excellent opportunity to showcase their institutions to more than 325,000 visitors from around the world!
Need more convincing? Check out our testimonial page to hear from attendees, performers AND exhibitors like:
-Dr. James Turner, Exhibitor Director, Percy Julian Institute
"Our experience was completely positive. I am including everything that took place both before and during the Festival. The parents and students we encountered at our booth felt the same way. Parents who had been at the Festival for 5 or 6 hours said their child did not want to leave and that they had never seen such enthusiasm. The Festival staff and floor volunteers were fantastic.
I enjoyed everything and was proud to be a participant."
-Magee Giarrosso, Exhibitor, Tufts University
"It was great! We had no idea what to expect as an exhibitor. To see all those smiling faces of parents and kids as they engage with our hands-on engineering activities was such a great experience. We also feel as if we got really great exposure about our programs and research at Tufts CEEO from this event."
