STEMville Science Symposium

STEMville Science Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for children to explore different types of STEM careers!

STEMville Science Symposium is a half-day science conference for children in grades four through seven. They meet and talk with scientists and researchers, participate in workshops and conduct experiments - constructing solar cells, extracting DNA from strawberries, building catapults and more.

STEMville Science Symposium is designed to be like a professional conference for career scientists in every way. There's even a keynote speaker, a snack break and a swag bag complete with notebook, pen, conference program, t-shirt and other goodies.

This event is part of the North Carolina Science Festival.

2018 Keynote Speaker: Alyssa Torres

Alyssa M. Torres is a 3D Animator from New York City. Alyssa has been drawing since she was five years old, inspired by her favorite movies like “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin”. In high school, computer art classes first showed her the many ways science and art could work together. Several art, web, and computer science classes later, she finally began to discover the miracle of making her drawings come to life through animation. She has worked on books, webseries, mobile games and now is animating the next show you will see at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center!
