Students, science lovers and engineering enthusiasts — head to Daytona Beach for  an event you’ll love! At STEMFEST Volusia, education meets entertainment for all ages. A collaboration between Daytona Stadium and Volusia County Schools, this special event is a celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics — AKA “STEM” in the world of education. 

This hotly anticipated educational event provides an opportunity for engagement and exchange between STEM professionals, children, teens, young adults and their families. It’s the ideal place to introduce your children to the possibilities of their future, or to nurture the passion they already have within the STEM field. Explore numerous exhibitors, get in on the action with hands-on activities, observe live performances, and enjoy interactive demonstrations and family-oriented STEM entertainment.

What happens at STEMFEST?

Here, you’ll discover a wide array of exhibitors and their many interactive activities and experiments. Strike up a conversation with a scientist, engage with an engineer — there really are few other experiences that offer such impactful one-on-one interaction with real-world STEM professionals.

Plus, STEM projects entered by elementary school, middle school, high school and college students will be on display. A number of colleges and universities, as well as local, regional and national companies, will be showcasing their own STEM programs, internships, mentorships and after-school programs. Of course, you won’t want to miss the live stage shows, like the “Solar Car Speedway” or the “Battle Beach - Combat Robot Competition.” There truly is something to enjoy for all ages.
