What is ESTEAM?

ESTEAM is Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. ESTEAM takes the idea of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education a step further, encouraging the cultivatation of creative and independent thought processes to foster the next generation of STEM innovators.

ESTEAM is a professional-style conference for seventh graders.

ESTEAM conferences are designed to increase young people's interest in ESTEAM careers by giving them an opportunity to interact with role models in related fields. The seventh-grade attendees participate in hands-on experiments and sessions led by local professionals, explore career paths, hear from speakers on their ESTEAM experiences in related fields, and take part in a professional conference on a college campus.

ESTEAM is an Expo too!

The Expo showcases the work done by students at the conferences as well as the work of our instructors, volunteers, sponsors, and other local organizations working in ESTEAM fields. This is a fun day of hands-on activities, demonstrations, vendors and more! The Expo is free and open to the public.

ESTEAM is a collaboration.

The ESTEAM Conferences and Expo are a collaboration between the Mountain Office of The Science House of NC State University, BioNetwork, the A-B Tech Small Business Center, and our many teachers and professionals volunteering their time and energy to making ESTEAM happen.
