While kids are heading back to school this year in ways unlike any other, MilliporeSigma’s science education focus remains the same – to spark curiosity in the next generation of scientists. Families are invited to join MilliporeSigma for SciFest All Access, a free, virtual STEM Expo brought to you by the USA Science & Engineering Festival.
For the past decade, the USA Science & Engineering Festival has offered the largest and only national science festival in the United States with thousands of hands-on activities, conversations with STEM mentors and exciting stage shows.
This year, the event is going virtual and global with SciFest All Access, taking place September 26 – October 3, 2020. This event is open to all, with the primary target audience being students ages 5-18 years-old, and with a special emphasis on schools and families with limited access to STEM education resources.
The virtual experience exhibit booths feature hands-on and interactive STEM content and performances on the “STEM Stage.” Attendees can also hunt for clues and earn badges and prizes through the Scavenger Hunt.
MilliporeSigma will feature its Curiosity Labs™ at Home videos at its virtual booth, located in the “Health and Medicine” room. The company is also part of the Exploration Path (ages 5-9) and Discovery Trek (ages 10-13) Scavenger Hunts.
