Description

As a leader in our community, you are invited to be our dinner guest at the FIRST® Arizona Conference for Technology Advocacy (FACTA). The event is completely organized by high-school students from all across Arizona advocating for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology)

Steve Sanghi, CEO and COB of Microchip Technology, Inc. and co-chair of the Arizona FIRST® Planning Committee, is our keynote speaker. Hear from passionate students from all grade levels about their journeys in STEM and their ideas for how we can improve education and grow Arizona’s economy. The event is catered and dinner will be free to all guests in attendance.

In an effort to promote STEM to all Arizona groups, FACTA is offering an opportunity for our guests to pledge funds to help STEM education for students on the Autism Spectrum at Science Prep Academy in Phoenix. One in 66, or 1.5 percent of 8-year-old children in Arizona are identified as having autism spectrum disorder or ASD. What makes Science Prep Academy so unique, is that they believe every student deserves an opportunity so the curriculum is designed to tailor to the individual needs of each of the students in a project based setting. By utilizing the FIRST Lego League curriculum, Science Prep Academy has filled the need gap for these students and created an incredibly impactful education.

All pledged funds will be presented as a surprise at the dinner.
