Annual Month-Long Festival to Celebrate STEM Across Maryland
October 15 @ 8:00 am - November 14 @ 5:00 pm
The Maryland STEM Festival is a month-long celebration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics held across the state of Maryland every fall. Hundreds of fun, interactive STEM learning events are hosted throughout the state by participating agencies and organizations such as libraries, public and private schools, colleges and universities, museums, professional associations, and nonprofits educational organizations to highlight the educational, cultural, and financial impact of science in this state.
The core mission of the festival is to cultivate a positive environment that inspires children and students to pursue science-related careers. However, people of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences are welcome to participate in the festival! The Maryland STEM Festival, Inc. (the organizing body) actively works to increase participation from minority communities and those underrepresented in STEM fields. All events are free and hosted in different locations across the state of Maryland- making it one of the most accessible and inclusive STEM events in the country. In fact, Maryland is one of the few states in the nation to have a state-wide STEM festival!
