Fort Bend ISD Career and Technical Education to host STEAM Fest

A free expo featuring hundreds of interactive educational activities for students, families and the community will fill Fort Bend ISD’s Kempner High School Saturday, February 10th from 9 am to 2 pm.

STEAM Fest is focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) activities and will feature a free, hands-on, minds-on expo for students, their families and the public.   More than 3,000 students are expected to be on hand, as well as local companies, non-profit organizations and Fort Bend ISD clubs, all sharing fun and highly interactive STEAM activities designed to help the community explore, invent and experiment.

Among the more than 30 STEAM-inspired activities on tap are a forensic science lab where attendees can examine evidence and try to solve a “crime,” a food exploration lab, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, art exhibits, a 3-D printing station, Rube Goldberg contest, straw-tower building station and much more. In addition, there will be performances by Fort Bend ISD theater, choir, orchestra, band and dance departments.

“This is a day to inspire and excite learners of all ages to problem-solve and continue to learn outside of the classroom,” said Meredith Watassek, Director of CTE for Fort Bend ISD. “Engaging, hands-on activities help students explore the possibilities offered in classes through Career and Technical Education, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.”

The event is free to attend, but attendees are asked to register at  For further information, contact the Fort Bend ISD CTE department at 281-634-1098.
