Event Purpose

Our goal with this event is to spark interest in science and inspire youth to pursue STEAM careers. This is part of an overall effort to consistently communicate the competitive advantage and opportunities that a STEAM education will offer individuals and the community.

Event History

In 2017, eSTEAM Club held the 1st Annual Science In The Park Event at Lineberger Park. In addition to free food and games, the event featured fun and simple science experiments, VR games and more. This year, we’ve partnered with the Bradley Community Center to make this an ALL day Fun-filled event for the entire family.
