Keene State College STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Fair, sponsored by the Keene State College School of Science, Sustainability and Health.
What is it? Both a STEM Fair for middle school students who will present projects for judging and prizes, AND an EXPO of local STEM opportunities showcasing local STEM businesses and organizations, as well as educational activities for kids. The 2019 promotional flyer can be found here. (this will be updated to 2020 soon).

Venue: Keene State College, Student Center Mabel Brown Room (2nd floor of KSC student center).
Parking: You will be able to park in the Elliot Lot on April 4th from 8 AM – 2 PM without a parking permit. This is the only lot that you can park in without a permit. The Elliot lot is located on Wyman Way, and is across the street from the Living Learning Commons (LLC) building. Here is a PDF map that shows Elliot Lot and the Student Center where the STEM Fair is being held.
If this lot is full, you can park in guest parking near Campus Safety. Their website lists some information about the guest parking lot.
To be ready for life, work and citizenship, 21st century learners need to grow their critical thinking skills, curiosity, confidence, commitment to problem solving, interpersonal skills and sense of social responsibility. They will need all of this and more, to become the innovators, researchers, educators and leaders of the future.
We hope that this STEM Fair will grow into an important regional event that provides opportunities for all of our region’s middle and high school students to discover STEM opportunities, including competition at the State and National Level Fairs.
