2020 Arizona SciTech Festival

Meet a robot. Solve real-life challenges facing wildlife. See a 3D printer in action. Watch a rocket launch. View the stars through powerful telescopes. 

Arizonans of all ages will be able to do all of this and much more at the 2020 Arizona SciTech Festival, the state’s annual celebration of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), from Jan. 25 through April 30, 2020.

The SciTech Festival is an innovative way to introduce our younger generations, as well as people of all ages, to current discoveries and future opportunities.

Now in its ninth year, the SciTech Festival isn’t a single-day event. It is the country’s third-largest science festival with more than 800 organizations partnering to present more than 2,300 events throughout the year. 

Spearheaded by the Arizona Commerce Authority, Arizona Science Center, SciTech Institute, Arizona Board of Regents, The University of Arizona and Arizona State University, the Arizona SciTech Festival is a wildly successful grassroots collaboration.

The festival offers abundant opportunities for kids, teens and adults to explore STEM across the state through interactive events, workshops, exhibitions, displays, lectures and tours. Best of all, SciTech events are free! 

This season kicks off with the annual Connect2STEM event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 25 at The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, 475 N. Fifth St. Children and parents can meet robots and Ghostbusters, try their hand at robotic surgery and play with planets, among 150 activities.
