Connect2STEM is back!

2018 is going to be bigger, better and nerdier!

The University of Arizona (UA), in partnership with Cox Communications, presents the fourth annual Connect2STEM — a family friendly event celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medicine. In 2017, the event drew more than 6,500 children and families!

STEM enthusiasts have the opportunity to interact with 100+ tables of hands-on science activities. Connect2STEM also serves as the official kickoff for the Arizona SciTech Festival.
