STEMFest brings fun and wonder to Downtown Round Rock, May 4

On Friday, May 4 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. all things Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) will descend upon Prete Plaza in Downtown Round Rock.

Considering the date of the event, it’s only fitting that the STEMFest theme for 2018 is “May the Fourth Be With You.” The free, family-friendly event features fun STEM activities designed to inspire students in Pre-K through middle school.

Families will experience out of this world activities including robotics, a cardboard challenge, 3D printing, coding, holography, legos and STEM challenges that use everyday materials for students to make and take home. For the young explorers, there will be activities geared specifically for ages 3-5 in the early childhood area.

STEMFest is a Round Rock ISD event brought to the community with the support of the Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation.

The event is free with free street and garage parking.
