Immerse your student in STEM! On February 20th, your child can participate in either Visioneering at SMU or the FABNow Conference in Fort Worth.

FAB NOW Conference 2016.

At the FAB NOW Conference 2016, Makers and Learners meet to show a project, demo it, explain it: why you did it, how you built it, what’s important about it! On the TCC Campus in Forth Worth, you will have a six foot table, electrical power, wifi, two chairs - and all day Saturday, February 20th, 2016 to showcase your work!

GMS STEM Academy students who are interested in participating will be eligible to attend. Your teachers will have more information after the break on sighing up. For now, click this link for a copy of the invitation flyer to get more information.
