The DIG STE(A)M Festival is a celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STE(A)M)
in rural communities. The festival is an outdoor event that provides an opportunity for engagement and
exchange between children, teens, families, and STE(A)M professionals.
The event showcases a multitude of local exhibitors who will provide hands-on activities, live
performances, interactive demonstrations, and family-oriented STE(A)M entertainment.
The goal of the event is to increase awareness of the role of STE(A)M in society while conveying the
importance of STE(A)M knowledge and skills in everyday life. The event’s hands-on experiments and
exhibits will nurture the students’ curiosity about STE(A)M as well as engage parents. This annual
event provides opportunities for parents to learn the importance of STE(A)M in their kid’s lives and the
possibility of STE(A)M careers and training for themselves. DIG is committed to providing educational
and inspirational offerings to rural communities at little to no charge in order to engage the largest
possible audience, especially under-served populations.
Our inaugural DIG STE(A)M Festival in 2016 attracted approximately 2,500 spectators, and showed
success amongst our spectators and exhibitors with 100% of exhibitors and spectators stating that they
were very satisfied with the festival. We are scheduled to host the 2017 DIG STE(A)M Festival on
April 22, 2017 in Williston, SC.
