WHAT IS TECHFEST?

TechFest was is designed to help students, like you, get a taste of the technical world around you. The Northeast Indiana Technology Coalition (NEITC), partners with a number of local businesses and schools to host this event. The event revolves around several STEM based competitions. What is STEM? STEM is a collection of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-based curricula combined to help students prepare for a career in a related field (or sometimes just for fun).

TechFest breaks these events into two categories: CUP Events and MAP (Most Active Participants) Events. CUP Events are the 7 main competitive events, requiring a team to compete that result in a winning school taking home the TechFest cup for the 2019-2020 school year. There are 5 additional events, MAP Events, focused on the application of STEM in the “real world”.

TechFest is a FREE event that takes place during regular school hours
