STEMfest is Saturday, October 18, 2014 at NIU Convocation Center!
STEMfest celebrates innovations in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Northern Illinois University STEM departments, student groups, regional corporations, museums, educators, and national labs are joining forces to present hundreds of activities that range in complexity to entertain people of all ages. We hope to increase awareness of the critical role science and other STEM fields play in our world every day.

- Exhibitors such as NIU's Davis Hall Observatory
- Demonstrations of technologies and intriguing science phenomena including our popular Creepy Chemistry and Haunted Physics Labs
- Fun for people of all ages!
