You're invited to the third annual Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) Family STEM Day on Columbia's Morningside campus. The event brings together alumni, their families, and students for an exciting day of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

You’ll have the chance to visit interactive booths for all ages; enjoy lunch, games, and giveaways; and listen to enlightening talks by astronomy Professor David Kipping and a diverse panel of STEM experts.

Exhibits will explore artificial intelligence, virtual reality, chemistry, biology, the arts, and robotics. Learn how ice flows, touch a real brain, take home your own tiny garden, and explore the states of matter using balloons, dry ice, and lots of energy!

We encourage all ages to attend, however we have specific content for ages 5-18.
