“The future is bright for the young explorers in our community that choose a career path in a STEM-based field,” said Jennifer Kanyo, Midland Center’s Senior Director of Museums & Education. “We want to challenge and inspire the young people in our community to dream of the undiscovered, uncover the unknown, and simply experiment with something they are interested in to prepare them for success as they continue their studies and choose their path for the rest of their lives.”

The STEM Festival will take place on April 30 for families, friends and community members to celebrate and explore unique science, technology, engineering and math projects created by students from the Great Lakes Bay Region. Youth STEM participants should submit their application by April 1, 2022 by visiting Applicants will be asked to present their experiment findings during the April 30 event, and will be adjudicated by a panel of judges, with an awards ceremony to follow that evening.
