Celebrate STEM at Maryville College

September 29, 2018   

We invite you to join Maryville College in its 6th annual STEMfest! STEMfest is a carnival-like event hosted by Maryville College's branches of American Chemical Society (ACS) and TriBeta Biological Honors Society (BBB).

From playing Connect Four with a robot, to performing “surgery” during a game of life-sized Operation, you will be able to experience STEM in a way like never before! This event will be filled with tons of STEM games, prizes, and even food! Multiple laboratory demonstrations will be held during STEMfest and will allow you to gain hands-on experience. (And maybe even take some hand-made souvenirs back home!)

For those interested, STEMfest has an overnight option for prospective Maryville College students, called STEMstay. STEMstay will allow you to have the full college experience! You will be able to connect with current students, stay in an on-campus residence hall, meet STEM faculty, and so much more! Sign up in your Future Scot Portal when you register to attend Meet Maryville!

We hope you will join us for STEMfest, and continue the pursuit of knowledge!

"STEMfest was the STEMbest!"
