Overview:
This year’s STEM Festival will be the first of its kind in Hardy County. The STEM Festival is expected to host up to 1,000 students, families, and community members. Sponsored by Moorefield Robotics, Eastern WV CTC, and the WVU Extension office, the mission of the STEM Festival is to motivate the interest of our youths in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities and careers by producing and facilitating, exciting, educational and interactive science activities.

The festival format allows guests and families to travel (or walk) through the buildings and outdoor spaces of the Eastern WV CTC campus at their own leisure while engaging in interactive experiences offered by facilitators who have traveled from a multi-state region. Facilitators who offer interactive experiences or engaging activities are given table and chair setups at assigned locations on campus. Facilitators should be prepared to meet with hundreds of guests throughout the day as guests visit and engage in activities at a leisurely pace.

Vendor Registration- Booth Types:
You may choose to register an “Interactive Booth” that hosts activities like 鈥渕ake and take鈥 items or short interactive experiences.
