TechFest 2021 Hosts Virtual Family Fun Event

Tune in to TechFest 2021 on February 13 &14

Since 2012, CJ STEMM has hosted fun activities led by student volunteers at this community event typically held at Sinclair Community College. Like most activities planned for larger crowds during this time of COVID-19, this event will be held virtually on February 13 and 14, and accessed from the TechFest website or Facebook page. Even so, the planners promise a wide variety of STEM activities for participants from the comforts of their homes.

"We're excited to be a part of this year's virtual event with an engaging experience about our amazing "Human Body Systems," said Meg Draeger, CJ STEMM coordinator. "Two of our CJ Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science students, Tori Hale '23 and Helen Brzozowski '23, helped create CJ's exhibit — a tour of our body systems. They were assisted by two very special 'residents' of the CJ science lab."

"For 19 years, TechFest has been the go to STEM festival in our region where families and people of all ages can do hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math activities, and meet and learn from local practicing STEM professionals and college and university students," said Draeger. "Families can check in and play and learn for one hour, or for the entire weekend!
