"Creating a Better World through STEM + Arts & Design"

Join us as we explore the wide world of science, technology, engineering, and math! As we return to in-person programming, this workshop will explore the ways that STEM fields (including architecture, planning and design) contribute to a more sustainable, healthy, equitable and inclusive world. All students in grades 6-8 are welcome. Students of all genders are welcome to attend. Activities will be led by K-State faculty, staff and students and will take place between 9am-3:30pm on K-State's campus in Manhattan, KS.
