Wellesley STEM Expo
Mark your calendars for our next STEM Expo to be held on April 8, 2017 when we will once again transform Wellesley High into an interactive science museum.
The EXPO is a hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) exposition including a speaker series, hands-on exhibits, workshops and a student work showcase transforming Wellesley High School into an interactive science center for a day. In addition to the EXPO itself, there are a series of events leading up to the big day, followed by several new, exciting events afterwards.
NEW Check out highlights from the 2014 and 2015 STEM Expos below! In addition, you can view the keynote speeches from both Expos, as well as review descriptions of the exhibits and workshops featured during the 2015 Expo.
