Arizona STEM Adventure

Every fall, 1,000 4th through 8th grade students from across Arizona adventure through a one-day glimpse into the world of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through this collaborative event brought to you by Pima Community College, IBM, Raytheon Technologies, The University of Arizona Office of Early Academic Outreach, Waters Center for Systems Thinking, Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA), and SARSEF. STEM professionals from throughout the community share their world to motivate students to complete a science or engineering project of their own.

Professional Development provides 50 teachers with best practices in guiding their students through the process of answering questions through science and engineering and $100 in materials.

Please contact Dani Wright, Director of Events and Volunteers, at with any questions or for more information.
