Family STEM festival returns to Denver

Exhibits and interactions with energy experts designed to spark students' interest in science, technology, engineering and math will highlight Energy Day, an annual free family STEM festival in Denver.

The Energy Day festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 at East High School, 1600 City Park Esplanade, Denver.

“Encouraging students by providing a space for them to see and experience the skills necessary to solve big-world problems in energy is the reason we put on one of the biggest STEM events in Denver,” Andrew Browning, chief operating officer of Consumer Energy Alliance, one of the hosts of this year's Energy Day event in Denver, said in a news release.

“We want kids to see how fun jobs in the energy sector are and help students get excited about jobs that could fill Colorado's workforce-ready pipeline with graduates who are well-versed in the sciences — setting them up for a successful career path."

Dozens of exhibitors will host interactive demonstrations and exhibits to teach students and their families about Colorado's various forms of energy, science, technology, efficiency, conservation and careers in the energy industry.

The Colorado Department of Transportation will have its electric vehicle on hand to showcase the driving options of the future. In partnership with CDOT, School of Mines students will present a Hyperloop project, highlighting the next generation in transportation. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Dakota Ridge High School Robotics Team will present model electric cars designed and constructed for NREL's annual Middle School Electric Car Competition this past May.
