Feature Story – 9,000 Attend STEM Outreach Event.
The University of Arizona (UA), in partnership with Cox Communications, presents Connect2STEM — a family friendly event, which celebrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medicine. The event is officially the largest STEM-related event held in Phoenix on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.
Through this event, youth of all ages are able to experience the wonders of STEM hands-on, encouraging them to one day pursue a degree or occupation in one of the related fields.
Registration Now Open
Connect2STEM returns on January 25, 2020! For groups of 25 or more, please email email@example.com.
Even though the event is FREE, all attendees should register and check-in upon arrival to the event. Those who register and check-in will automatically be entered for a chance to win an iPad. The drawing will be held after the event, and the winner will be notified via email.

Nothing better represents an investment in STEM and an investment in the future of Arizona than right here at the Biomedical Campus in the heart of downtown Phoenix. So many young people will visit the medical school for the first time today and say, ‘That could be me as a future doctor, surgeon, nurse or physician assistant.’ That’s what Connect2STEM is all about.
