The fifth annual Maryland STEM Festival and Expo will bring myriad STEM-related activities, programs, and organizations together Oct. 26 in one place in Leonardtown. Parents and students can explore the various hands-on activities to help foster their child’s STEM interests. This annual event is one of many STEM-related programs available to students in St. Mary’s County.

There will also be opportunities for students to do some hands-on learning with demonstrations in robotics, rocketry, and many other fascinating areas of STEM.  There truly will be something for everyone at the expo. Students of all ages are encouraged to attend.
