4th Annual AR STEM Festival

Our Fourth Annual AR STEM Festival was nothing but spectacular as we dove deep into the theme of agriculture. Agriculture is one of the leading industries in Arkansas, so why not learn and plan how we can help our state grow and improve? We had more than 30 schools represented as observers in the festival, bringing our total participants to more than 2,000. There were over 100 projects on display, hands-on activities, a petting zoo, and a tractor for visitors to experience up close.

We want to thank all the teachers who supported their students through their research, and we want to thank all the students for their work. Without you, none of this would be possible. Without you, STEM would have no future. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for embracing the future!
