Students from Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., will have an opportunity to engage in all things STEM — short for science, technology, engineering and math — at the Naval STEM Exposition, held at the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland on April 12, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in advance of the 50th annual Sea-Air-Space Exposition.
The expo, co-sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Navy League STEM Institute, is free and geared to students in grades six through twelve. It will provide middle and high school students an introduction to naval STEM careers and applications through guest speakers and hands-on activities. Some of the activities include driving a robot from the Marine Corps, touring the R/V Sperry Star III and experiencing a flight simulator.

This event is open to all high school students in the state of Maryland. High school students build a walking robot from a kit provided by the IEEE Baltimore Section. They have to decorate it, learn how to make it walk down an obstacle course for time, create a written report on their project and make an oral presentation to a group of judges from the local engineering community. They also have the option of adding an automation kit to the robot which they have to program.

Robot Fest is an annual event for anyone interested in the creative use of technology. It could be best described as a "Day of Playful Invention." We encourage makers, hackers, hobbyists, DIYers, experimenters, students, artists, and engineers, young and old to share their passion for technology and creativity. They bring their creations and inventions for everyone to see and are excited to explain how they work.
If you are inexplicably drawn to sites like Makezine, Instructables, Hackaday, Servo Magazine, Nuts and Volts, or Robot Magazine, you will enjoy this day of playful invention!
See something new. Ask questions. Awaken your creative instinct.
It features workshops and numerous hands-on activities that are a big hit with younger attendees. There will always be "Make and Take" activities offered. Our event is designed to offer activities and things to see and do that appeal to both boys and girls. One of the goals of our event is to spark an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
This event is sponsored each year by the National Electronics Museum, which is a technology marvel in its own right. The museum, located in Linthicum, MD, houses decades worth of creative engineering and showcases technical advances in science and engineering.
Join the fun and excitement with hands-on exhibits, and workshops!
Robot Fest, Saturday, April 25th has a suggested admission donation of $8 for adults, $4 for middle and high-school students.
Elementary school children and younger are still FREE!
