Our Impact

Congratulations, Festival Folk! As CEO of the Planetary Society I was thrilled to be part of the fun on stage and at our booth. As an engineer I was delighted to see so many young people and adults attending and participating. Thanks to all 365,000 of you, who showed up to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Together, we're changing the world.

Outstanding! I attended with my wife, daughters & grandsons. We started with the X-STEM sessions on Thursday. Every presenter was world class & all of the presentations were loaded with information & inspiration. This high level of excellence continued throughout the entire weekend of the STEM festival. The exhibitors were also top notch and extremely well staffed. I have participated in and/or attended many festivals & conferences all over the world & I would rate this STEM Festival as vastly superior to anything!

Ron, Attendee

First time attending this event. Definitely not the last. So much to see! My son LOVED ROBOT FEST!! Thank you all so much for making this happen. Our future depends on events like these. I wanted my son to see what the world of science and Engineering and to offer and the USA Science & Engineering Festival really did deliver just that!

Jennifer, Attendee

It is not only important, it is arguably our duty as a world-leading health organization to not
only set standards and execute on operational requirements, but to generate awareness, educate the public,
and drive the next generation of scientists and leaders. Supporting grassroots and formal educational avenues
will generate critical long-term returns.

As an educator, I am very thankful for my students being able to "interact" with speakers they would otherwise not ever have access to. My students were most impressed with the career transitions of some of the presenters. During our post-event discussions, they also appreciated the exposure to career fields that they were not even aware of -- and the importance of communication skills for every career -- the importance of being able to ‘tell your story’.

Attendee, X-STEM All Access

I’ve learned so much about STEM because of SciFest! It greatly broadened my knowledge about career options and showed many new and incredibly useful applications of STEM. It also introduced great resources that I can use in the future! I’ve learned a lot!

A Message from Our Founder

"A nation gets what it celebrates! As a culture, we celebrate movie stars, rock stars, and athletes and we generate a lot of them, but we don't celebrate Science and Engineering. Strengthening the STEM educational foundation of our nation is vital to our future economy and the health, safety, and well-being of America's families." - Larry Bock
