We Bring the Festival to You
The Maryland STEM Festival, Inc. (MSF) has been established to operate the Festival. The mission of the Festival is to encourage all students regardless of background and experience to take a greater interest in STEM with the hope they will pursue a STEM related/focused career.
The MSF works for an entire year recruiting as many organizations as it can to participate in the Festival, such as libraries, museums, public and private schools, colleges, universities, government agencies and private companies.
What is STEM?
While some see STEM in a very narrow light, MSF sees STEM in the broadest of terms. We see it including all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. That means, it may include robotics, agriculture, biotechnology, zoology, or cybersecurity. We see STEM is every aspect of life. We feel many people do not realize all the ways they interact with STEM.
Maryland STEM Festival Spotlight
The 2021 Festival will take place from October 16th through November 14th. With COVID continuing to dominate the news cycle, we have chosen Health and Wellness as our 2021 theme. Health Care and Wellness are very large and diverse segments of the Maryland economy. Maryland is home to some of the world’s leading health care institutions and hospitals. BioHealth and Life Sciences are considered key industries by Maryland’s Department of Commerce. Health and Wellness careers can range from Medical Researchers to Physical Trainers and much more. It can take from several months to twelve years of schooling to enter these careers. Join us as we explore many of these fields and careers during this year’s Festival.
