Thank you to everyone who came out for the 5th Annual Central Ohio STEM Expo held March 3, 2018 at Thomas Worthington High School. Attendees were able to participate in nearly 40 fun and interactive activities and exhibits in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields. Participants made cars from food and raced them, battled robots, saw concrete float, built towers out of spaghetti, saw a real human brain, and participated in many more enriching and intriguing activities. 

We look forward to another great Expo next year. Please check back in early 2019!


The STEM Expo is thanks to the efforts of many ASCE members and without them there would not be a STEM Expo each year. Thank you to the following volunteers for donating their time to help make the Expo a success.
