STEM EXPO magnetic activity

The Central Ohio STEM Expo is a free central Ohio community outreach event for students grades K through 8 to explore the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. At the inaugural event in 2014, the American Society of Civil Engineers Central Ohio Section welcomed over 140 students to participate in interactive activities and exhibits in the STEM fields. The ASCE Central Ohio Section is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Central Ohio STEM Expo will be held on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at the Metro School from 9 AM to 1 PM. The event will again serve as a conclusion to Engineer’s Week.

To pre-register a student for the event, please email and include the student’s name, grade, and school. Registration will also be available at the door the day of the event.

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. Activity sponsors should be prepared to accommodate between 150 and 250 students throughout the event, however usually not in groups of more than 5. Ideally, the activity would take students 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

Please contact to register as an activity sponsor.
