Techstravaganza is an opportunity for TJ students and faculty to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for STEM with the public. Visitors to this annual event learn from dozens of student-led demonstrations and can participate in hands-on STEM activity labs aimed at students in Kindergarten through middle school. Banana DNA, Making Ice Cream, and Stomp Rockets remain some of the event’s most popular exhibits.
Techstravaganza is hosted by TJ’s Tomorrow’s Women in Science and Technology (TWIST), a student-led organization committed to increasing diversity and particularly female participation in STEM activities, and funded by area sponsors.
More than 2,900 people from over 192 different schools visited Techstravaganza in 2017. This year’s event will be held on May 19th. For more information, please visit the Techstravaganza site.
