About this Event

Come one, come all! The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) invites you to join us this spring for our upcoming learning extravaganza: The Next Big Think!

This FREE public event promises to be our County’s largest-ever gathering of students, parents, educators, and learners of all ages.

The Next Big Think will host our 2020 SMCOE STEM Fair alongside an expansive student Arts Expo, Districts Showcase, a pop-up Makerspace, and more — all under one giant roof! There’s never been a celebration of San Mateo County learning and innovation quite like this one.

Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to the San Mateo County Event Center on March 15 between 11:00am and 4:00pm — with so much to see and do, you’re guaranteed to learn something new!
