"Inspiring Wonder Through STEM"

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018

Azusa Pacific University is hosting the 5th annual STEM Day!

(formerly STEM/Nova Day)


The University Libraries and Center for Research in Science partner annually to host an educational event for Boy Scouts. As of 2017, it was opened to Girl Scouts for the first time. Beginning with the 2018 event, it is now open to anyone in grades 1-12, including those who are not Scouts.

Attendees enjoy sessions filled with STEM instruction and hands-on activities taught by APU professors and university students from various departments, representatives from the San Gabriel Nature Conservancy, and instructors from Barnabas Robotics.

The activites utilize APU's state-of-the-art equipment for classes such as Moviemaking, Geology, Animation, Robotics, Engineering, and more! Classes offered may change from year to year.

The classes are designed to help meet the requirements for Boy Scout and Girl Scout badges, but non-Scouts will also enjoy the opportunity to learn and complete activities in these STEM classes.

Included in the registration cost is a special event T-shirt that each ticketed attendee will receive, along with a patch. Registration also covers the costs for any materials used in the classes. Scouts do not need to arrive in uniform and are encouraged to wear the T-shirt during the event.

Parents and leaders are welcome to attend sessions for no cost, but be advised there may be limited space in the classrooms.

NOTE: Due to class size limits, groups are limited to no more than 10 group members registered per class session. Thank you for your understanding.
