The Northeast Iowa Family STEM Festival will take place at the Recreation Center, located at Upper Iowa University’s Fayette Campus, Thursday, October 18. The free public event will be held from 4-7 p.m.
The goals of the festival are to promote, inspire and engage youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities and to introduce children and parents to STEM careers in their local communities.
