The Central Ohio STEM Expo is a free educational outreach event for students grades K through 8 to explore the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. At the 2015 event, the ASCE Central Ohio Section welcomed 367 students to participate in over 30 STEM related interactive activities and exhibits. The ASCE Central Ohio Section is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Central Ohio STEM Expo will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at Thomas Worthington High School from 9 AM to 1 PM.

The STEM Expo is an exhibition type event and there is no set schedule. Parents are encouraged to participate with their children in the activities. Older children may be left unsupervised at the discretion of the parent.

Activity Sponsors
We are seeking local STEM professionals, educators, and organizations to serve as activity sponsors or exhibitors. Sponsoring an activity is easy and a great way to get involved in this educational outreach event. Activity sponsor responsibilities would include:

  • Developing a fun, interactive STEM related activity;
  • Obtaining funding through your employer for the activity materials, if necessary; and,
  • Facilitating the activity at the STEM Expo event (typically 2-3 people needed).

A classic example of this type of activity would be the gumdrop and toothpick truss bridge. Ideally, the activity would take students 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Students are free to explore any activity during the event, and groups generally do not exceed 5 students at a time.

Please contact to register as an activity sponsor or submit questions.
