Event description


"Deciphering the Secrets of STEM"

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019

Azusa Pacific University is hosting the 6th annual STEM Day!

(formerly STEM/Nova Day)

Sponsored by the University Libraries’ Educational Programming and the Center for Research in Science

1st-12th grade students from throughout southern California attend a day of exciting classes on a variety of STEM topics, taught by APU professors and students and other experts in their fields. Classes are structured to help Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts meet many of the requirements for their badges, but all students are welcome and will enjoy the rich learning experience in a fun, hands-on environment utilizing APU’s state-of-the-art equipment.

Exact classes offered vary from year to year but may include topics such as geology, engineering, cinematography, and robotics.

For STEM Day at APU 2019, attendees who go to school in a district with which Azusa Pacific University has a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for guaranteed admission to the university are eligible for a discount of 10% off their tickets. Click the green "Tickets" bar, then click the "Enter Promotional Code" link. Enter the code "MOU" (not case-sensitive, no quotation marks).

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.

Do I need to pay or get a pass for parking? Where do I park?

Parking is free, and no pass is needed.

Parking is available in the West Campus lots F and G. The lots are located on either side of the main drive (the one lined with pillars) and are situated in front of the Darling Library and Mary Hill buildings.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email at libraryepo@apu.edu or call (626) 815-6000 ext. 5255.

What's the refund policy?

No refunds will be given.

Can I register when I get there?

There will be no on-site registration available. Registration must be completed through this portal ahead of time. Tickets will be on sale until December 31, 2018, though tickets may sell out and classes may fill up before then. Be sure to register early as classes fill up quickly.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. When you arrive, check in at the bottom of the wide set of stairs. Each registered attendee can pick up a packet that will be filed under the attendee's last name, not that of the ticket buyer. Each packet includes the event T-shirt, patch, list of classes registered for, schedule, map, name tag, and (if purchased) Sam's Subs meal voucher.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes, within certain parameters. If you are unable to attend and wish to transfer your ticket, please email libraryepo@apu.edu with the name of the person registered and the name of the one who will be attending instead. Note: The new attendee may not be able to change classes due to class size limits and classes being full. The new attendee also must be in the same grade range as the originally-registered one (e.g., a 3rd-grade ticket can not be transferred to a 10th-grade student). We recommend that the new attendee be in the exact same grade as the originally-registered one since each class is designed for specific grade levels.

What can/should I bring into the event?

Attendees may bring what they need for the day, such as a jacket and beverages and snacks. On-campus dining options will be open as well. Some lab classrooms may not allow food and beverages inside. Check with the instructor in the morning. Be sure to not leave anything behind!

The needed supplies and writing implements are supplied in each class. Those working toward badges may wish to bring any required paperwork, such as a blue card.

No alcohol, drugs, weapons, or pets, and APU is a non-smoking campus.

Can I change to a different class after registering?

Changes are dependent on class sizes. Each class is limited in size, but changes may be possible for classes that are not yet full. Please contact us if a need for a change should occur. The new class must be for the same grade level.

Is there a waitlist?

This year we are integrating a waitlist option that will go into effect once the event has sold out or after ticket sales end on January 7th. After opting in to the waitlist, you will receive automated emails from Eventbrite informing you of when an opening has become available. You will have a window of time in which to register, so be sure to check your email.
