For those who do not know, TechFest is an event held every year in a cooperative effort from the Northeastern Indiana Technology Coalition and other industry partners. The goal is to help promote the Science Technology Engineering Mathematics curriculum (S.T.E.M.) and help generate more interest in the respective fields.
TechFest is now going into its 8th year and has been growing ever since. We are proud to say we have over 18 Northeastern Indiana High Schools who participate every year. Over 500 students come from the 18 High Schools to compete in 7 STEM based events and learn about the industry in the area. We also host a College and Career Expo. Where our partners can set up booths and talk to the students about what they do as a STEM based company in a low pressure casual environment. Within the College and Career Expo we offer a small number of students a chance to get an extreme interview as if they were interviewing for a real job!
