Da Vinci Fest

Join us at Da Vinci Fest on Jan. 5, 2019.

We were delighted that Sen. Amy Klobuchar joined us at the 10th Annual Da Vinci Fest, our celebration of art and science. Da Vinci Fest gives students a chance to show their talents and smarts in a Science Fair, Art Fair, Film Fest, Spoken Word and Science Challenge events. But it’s also a HUGE community event with educational exhibits, demonstrations and performances.

Sen. Klobuchar helped us kick off the Stillwater Science Challenge, an on-the-spot science competition in the manner of the Science Olympiad. Before that, she spoke about the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education in the economic competitiveness of the country.

Exhibitors' showcase

Every year, we invite businesses and groups to present interactive and hands-on science, technology and art exhibits to inspire and motivate K-12 students and parents who attend Da Vinci Fest. The exhibitor booths complement the student projects and provide a unique glimpse at how science, art and technology apply in the real world. Previous exhibitors have included an extraordinary range of local and national businesses, clubs, public agencies, schools and individuals.

We are always looking for new exhibitors to delight the thousands of families and community members who attend Da Vinci Fest each year. If you know of an organization or business with a unique, interactive display or demonstration that may be interested in outreach with kids and families, please email Kristie Smith.
