Join us for a day of Maker fun and exploration at Family STEM Day.  What is STEM?  It is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
This family-focused event will showcase some of the fun and exciting ways STEM relates to our daily lives. There will be a variety of hands-on experiments and activities for families to engineer, explore, and build together, as well as some demonstrations of cool and exciting technology that happens right here in Waunakee.
