GLOBE – What would your clothes be made of if you had lived 700 years ago? Do you know how an electric guitar creates sound? Can you determine an animal’s diet by the shape of its teeth? What do you know about our region’s soil and plant life? Would you make a good water shed manager? What role do global positioning satellites play in copper mining?

No, this is not a pop quiz! The answers to these questions – and many, many more – are waiting to be discovered at this year’s STEMFest on Saturday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to noon! STEMFest will take place at the beautiful and historic Besh Ba Gowah Archaeological Park located at 1324 S. Jesse Hayes Road in Globe near the Globe Community Center.

STEMFest offers an interactive, hands-on experience that leaves lasting impressions on festival visitors regardless of their age and life experiences. With more than 40 demonstrations and fun activity booths, there is something for everyone!

STEMFest is a free community event that celebrates STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and the many ways STEM affects our daily lives. From water management to robotics, from glowing fires to glowing rocks, you will be amazed at what you discover at STEMFest.

STEMFest is an annual event sponsored by Gila County Superintendent of Schools Linda O’Dell and made possible by the many organizations, businesses, agencies, clubs, and civic groups that come together to bring STEM alive in Gila County!

We hope to see you there!
