5th Annual

Arkansas STEM Festival

Initiated by LISA Academy

Friday, March 8, 2019


You are invited!

It is time to begin preparations for the 5th Annual Arkansas STEM Festival, which will be held on Friday, March 8th, 2019. On display will be a variety of projects showcasing topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Students in grades 6-12 may apply to present their projects at the Arkansas STEM Festival. Interested students should work with an adviser or teacher to apply; guidelines and instructions for applications may be found on our website. We also encourage students in grades K-12 to come and tour the festival on March 8, 2019. While we welcome projects from any aspect of STEM, this year's special theme is Green Energy. Green energy, known as renewable energy, is the energy derived from natural processes and can be regenerated easily over time. Some of these eco-friendly energy sources include solar energy, wind, geothermal, compressed natural gas, etc. These sources of energy are known as green power, as they tend to be environmentally friendly and use natural processes.

Additional Information

Festival`s Theme : “Green Energy”

This year's theme for AR STEM Festival is Green Energy. Green energy, known as renewable energy, is the energy derived of natural processes and can be regenerated easily over time. Some of these eco-friendly energy sources include solar energy, wind, geothermal, compressed natural gas, etc. These sources of energy are known as green power, as they tend to be environmentally friendly and use natural processes. The sun is one important source of renewable, green energy, with it being an inexpensive, biological energy for supporting life on earth. However, of all that total energy produced by the sun, only a very minuscule amount of that energy accounts for electricity used worldwide. Instead, fossil fuels are utilized to generate and power electricity as it is more cost efficient and effective.
