Techstravaganza

Techstravaganza is an opportunity for TJ students 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 activities; Banana DNA, Making Ice Cream, and Stomp Rockets remain some of the event’s most popular exhibits.

More than 4,350 people from over 300 different schools attended Techstravaganza in 2018. This year’s event, due to be held on May 16th, 2020, was unfortunately cancelled. Nevertheless, for more information, please visit the Techstravaganza site.

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. This nonprofit event is largely supported by area sponsorships, donations, and grants. Funding goes towards lab materials, set-up, and the bus transportation system. To increase accessibility, TWIST will provide buses to and from schools of high interest, with priority given to Title I elementary schools, on the day of Techstravaganza.

If you are interested in becoming a Techstravaganza sponsor, please email Miriam Lamoreaux at mlamoreaux@fcps.edu. Donations of $250 and above are considered sponsorships, and your logo will be displayed on the Techstravaganza website and promotional materials.
