Salt Lake City, June 20 – Craft Lake City® is pleased to announce that Google Fiber will return as sponsor of the STEM Building at the 10th Annual Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival®, held on Friday, Aug. 10 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 11 from noon to 10 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 12 from noon to 7 p.m. Google Fiber is sponsoring the STEM Building at the DIY Festival for the fourth consecutive year.
One of the most popular destinations at the DIY Festival, the Google Fiber STEM Building features local tinkerers, tech startups, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions and provides a unique opportunity to learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) projects happening in Utah. STEM crafts let attendees get hands-on with topics such as circuits, mechanics, programming and more. Festival-goers can have their curiosity satisfied by stopping by the Meet a Scientist table, which lets the community engage with local experts in a range of science, math, technology and engineering topics.
In addition, the Google Fiber STEM Building will feature FREE educational workshops in STEM topics throughout the weekend. Topics at last year’s festival included bot design, eclipses, circuit bending and more. Stay tuned for more information, coming soon to craftlakecity.com.
“Google Fiber is a supportive partner and strong advocate for digital accessibility in the community,” said Alex Porpora, STEM Building Coordinator. “We are excited to welcome them back as the STEM Building sponsor for the fourth year in a row and thank them for their ongoing support of STEM education at the DIY Festival.”
