Share your work with the public during the Kansas Science Festival
The Kansas Science Festival, supported by several Kansas State University units, is a new initiative on a mission to co-create STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics — experiences that spark excitement and curiosity in learners of all ages. The inaugural Kansas Science Festival will take place April 20-30 with a series of activities, including our signature event: Kansas Science Festival @Downtown MHK, from 1-5 p.m. April 30. This event provides researchers and community STEAM practitioners from all backgrounds and career stages an opportunity to share their work with the broader public.
Members of the K-State community are invited to participate and present their work in the form of a hands-on, family-friendly activity. The goal is to provide the broader community with a glimpse of all the exciting ways STEAM intersects with our daily lives, to spark curiosity and excitement in learners of all ages and, frankly, to have fun!
K-State community participation is welcome regardless of specialization or career stage. Whether you are a faculty member with developed outreach activities for broader impacts, a graduate student with an exciting research project, or an undergraduate student organization with a passion for STEAM, please sign up to participate and register for a booth by April 8 using the Kansas Science Festival website.
If you are excited about this initiative but do not have an activity in mind, you can also help the Kansas Science Festival as a volunteer prior to, during or after the event. Volunteers can sign-up through the following website: scienceks.org/support-us/.
If you have any questions, please contact the steering committee via email.
