STEMville Science Symposium
Explore STEM careers and meet other young explorers at STEMville Science Symposium!
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.
