I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since a bunch of us were dragging in tables, electrical cords, and general nervousness in from the pouring rain at Pinkerton High School in Derry NH. We didn’t really know each other too well. I had a neighbor who had “dragged” me into it. But here we are! New Hampshire Techfest. This organization was on the front side of the now “Makers Faire” hype promoting STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, to Middle and High School aged students.
Over the past few years we have seen kids jaws drop. From laser shows, to building bridges, dance moves to star gazing. Apples flying through the air? What a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. What impresses me the most is the impact that a handful of dedicated volunteers can make. Kari has been working hard with Yvonne to make sure all exhibitors are set, the house is ready, and the students are prepared for fun! All we need is YOU.
Please reach out to anyone in the greater New Hampshire area to come to see the event. Parents, students, companies and/or organizations involved in STEM. I hope to see you there on October 24!!
