Welcome To X-STEM All Access

X-STEM All Access – presented by AstraZeneca – is an entertaining, educational, and interactive online STEM experience for 6-12th graders. Through a series of daily livestream events, students we heard from an exclusive group of visionaries who aim to inspire kids about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Our moderator, Justin Shaifer (Mr. Fascinate), took kids on a STEM adventure that was anything but boring with a new set of engaging speakers, brain breaks and Q&A’s every day.

Follow us on Instagram for speaker announcements and exciting updates to X-STEM and the USA Science & Engineering Festival.
