What

To accomplish the primary goals of the Expo, activities have been developed for participating students, teachers, and the general public. Participating students will work with their teachers and/or mentors to prepare a demo that they will present to the public at the Expo. The general public will have the chance to view presentations by local industries and universities that include applications such as solar energy, robotics and the like. There will also be door prizes.

Who

  • Students who have a project to share in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and/or Health
  • Teams of students who have collaborated on a STEM & Health project together
  • Teachers and students who wish to share a classroom investigation
  • Community professionals who offer a hands-on experience for students, involving careers in Science, Technology, engineering, Math, and Health
  • Families who would like to come to the Expo to enjoy hands-on activities and explore the excitement and opportunities that STEMP & Health has to offer

Why

Our mission is to expose Florida’s citizens to the exciting and engaging world of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and health to ignite their interests and motivation for these disciplines. We want students engaged in early age and kept in the STEM & Health pipeline as they grow, so they are set to become successful STEM & Health professionals later on in life. The STEM & Health Expo is Florida’s alternative to the typical County Science & Health Fair. It allows the students to get a chance to showcase their science work in a fun and unique venue, with learning opportunities for the entire family.
