Healthy STEM Fair Call for Presenters

2013 Healthy STEM 5K and Fair

2013 Healthy STEM 5K and Fair

We are thrilled to announce the second annual Healthy STEM 5K and Fair on Saturday, May 31 at the University of Utah. We are currently looking for non-profit community members who are interested in hosting a booth at the STEM fair.

In addition to sharing program information, we are asking each group to have a “presentation” element. We would like it to be something that engages the community (K-12 students, parents, teachers) in a STEM learning experience.

We would also like each group to provide one “take-away” for the community members. This can be a bookmark with a website for more information, a lesson plan, or something that allows them to share the STEM learning experience with others and/or follow up on STEM interests after the fair.

The STEM fair will be an open event, so having personal onsite to engage and inform the participants in an informal setting is ideal. We have a limit on the number of organizations that are able to attend, so reserve your space quickly!

However, there is no limit on the number of representatives from your organization, so you’re are welcome to bring as many representatives as you need to adequately connect with the participants. Each group will have one table and two chairs allocated to them, and there is no cost for presenting. Set-up will be at 7:30 a.m. and take-down will be at 10:30 a.m.

If you are interested in participating in the STEM Fair, please send an email to laura.ward@schools.utah.gov with the following information:
