For our 4th Annual Just Say YES STEM FEST, we're inviting the community to this on-site hands-on and virtual learning experience, to have hands-on access to coding, app and digital device resources, 3-D maker software, Harry Potter Kano via Surface tablets and more!

What's new this year?!

Students will participate in a STEAM educational showcase from area STEM providers, and have a chance to engage with a rotating panel of 30 STEM mentors from across various STEM career fields throughout the day!

We've teamed up with local colleges and Universities so Parents can learn about the various aspects of how to support their children in elementary, middle and high school prepare for math and science standards that best prep kids to succeed in STEM pathways.

Thanks to resources from Georgia STEM, K-12 Educators can learn the latest in STEM accreditation at our resource table, as well as hear from Microsoft about how to become a Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE)!

Just Say YES STEMFEST is fun for all ages and skill levels! This event is perfect for students 3rd grade and up, parents, K-12 educators, college students, and STEAM Clubs.

"Just Say YES STEMFEST" is an annual event that launched on GA STEM DAY 2017 as part commitment to equip youth and their families with accessible resources that lead to positive lifestyle choices.

In 2020, officially kicks off a regional initiative called Building E-STE(A)M For Youth Partnership Alliance to intentionally resource rural and historically underserved communities with pathways to access STEAM programming.Partner your school, STEAM club, or STEM resource today!

STEM-Spirit School Contest

This year we're upping the ante to get kids and educators excited about the possibilities of STEM by awarding the school with the most participants with the STEM-Spirit Award!

Why digital skills?From basic digital literacy to advanced computer science, digital skills are often out of reach for the young people who need them most. In a world being transformed by technology, all youth should have the opportunity to develop the creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills gained by learning computer science.

The focus of this event is to:

-Reinforce growth mindset in young people, build their self-esteem and transition their thinking from "I CAN'T" into "I CAN" for math, science, and STEM-related curriculum and careers

-Help connect parents, educators and STEAM providers together to increase a capacity for a wider opportunity for partnership of resources and youth enrichment-Increase impact for the lives of children needing a deeper exploration of computer science, technology, engineering, the arts, mechanics, math, and medicine.

-Serve the community with a Community Learning Lab in a free open public space to increase the opportunities for fun learning environments for all people, while supporting healthy family foundations and help communities thrive where historically underserved citizens live, work, and play!
