Dream it. Believe it. Build it.
We believe in the importance of empowering young minds to be our future innovators. At Family Fix-it Fest, we want you to get your hands dirty! And we have a little something for every age in our Learning Zone. Exploration Stations will be set-up, each focusing on a different activity. Some of our S.T.E.M. activities are more exploratory and sensory and others are more challenging and require more problem solving.
What can you expect to find in our Learning Zone?
• Sensory play
• Building games
• Touch-A-Truck experiences
• Construction-based challenges
Our younger attendees are encouraged to think creatively, solve problems and express their own ideas using practical materials.
I love S.T.E.M.! Can I volunteer?
Yes! We are seeking middle school, high school, and college age students as well as adults to help facilitate the activities at our exploration stations. We'd LOVE your help! If interested, please email us.
Live S.T.E.M COMPETITION @1pm
Open to all students 5th-8th grade. Students will sign-up prior to the event in groups of 4 (registration below). Each team will be challenged to work cooperatively and think strategically to solve a S.T.E.M. problem and beat the clock.
Details about the specific challenge will be revealed at the start of the competition. Materials will be provided to complete the task and time will be given at the beginning to brainstorm. All 4 team members must be active participants. Teams who don't adhere to the basic rules for the competition will be disqualified.
Over $300 in Cash + Prizes!
Cash and gift card prizes will be awarded to the winning team (and teachers who inspire the kids to sign up and participate, if applicable). We believe in education and want to give students and teachers an opportunity to earn some much needed money for their classrooms.
Thanks to our generous sponsors...
