Each year, the Google Fiber STEM Building is one of the most popular destinations at the DIY Festival. This year we welcome you back to in-person connection with a hands-on water rocket launch, where participants will design and test ideas about using water and air pressure to launch their own personalized 2-liter bottles high into the sky. The Google Fiber STEM Building will also feature hands-on scientific demonstrations and other presentations by STEM exhibitors. Exhibitors include Clark PlanetariumMake Salt LakeThe Leonardo, and many more. You can find a full list of the STEM exhibitors on the exhibitor page of the Craft Lake City website.

“We want to get science back into people’s hands”, says Lyndi Perry, Craft Lake City’s STEM Coordinator.  “We are excited to partner with exhibitors that are bringing their own brand of cleverness and creativity to important topics, using STEM subjects–science, technology, engineering and math–to more deeply explore and understand the world. This year, we are so excited to share this understanding in person again!”
