FullRunCal_030916_StemSteamSTEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is evolving into STEAM (STEM + Art) because today’s K-12 students need to be prepared for the workforce of the future and the arts teach young people many of the integral skills needed to thrive in the 21st century workplace.

Hofstra University Continuing Education and Hofstra Summer Camps will host its first annual STEM/STEAM Fair on Saturday, March 12, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Breslin Hall on the university’s south campus. The fair will feature hands-on demonstrations of 3D printing, Oculus Rift, video game design, coding with Raspberry Pi, mobile app development, robotics, engineering and more.

At this free event, parents and youngsters in grades 2-12 can learn more about the many STEM/STEAM courses offered year-round on the Hofstra University campus. The event will feature displays of recent innovations in technology as well as the chance to speak with instructors and on-site program registration.
