Barely beginning its fifth year of existence, the Arizona SciTech Festival already ranks as the third largest science and technology festival in the nation, only surpassed by Washington, D.C., and New York City. Newcomers Fountain Hills, El Mirage and Surprise are among more than 50 Arizona communities and 800 organizations partnering to stage more than 1,000 events in 2016 as they showcase science, technology and innovation throughout the state primarily in February and March.
Arizonans of all ages have gathered annually since 2012 to learn about how science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEM) affects their everyday lives through events done. The festival is anchored at the Arizona Commerce Authority, in collaboration with foundational partners including the Arizona Technology Council Foundation, Arizona Science Center, Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and Arizona Board of Regents.
