Here's what you need to know.
TechFest was set up to help students in high school get a taste of the technical world. The Northeast Indiana Technology Coalition, the NEITC works with a number of local business and schools to host this event. The event revolves around several STEM competitions. What is STEM? STEM is a collection of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-based curricula all put together to help students get prepared for a career in a related field. (Or sometimes just for fun).
What can (you/we/I) do?
We always welcome help, and would be happy to have you and/or your company join us. As far as the event goes, it spans two days. The first being set up: Thursday, and the second: Friday, the actual event. The setup day has 2 hour shifts but can be longer. The shifts start at 8:00am and usually finish up around 5:00-6:00 pm.
Friday is the event day and that is where the roles diversify the most. We have positions in traffic control, lunch staff, judging competitions, check-in/check-out, tear-down, and a number of odd jobs as well. If you do decide you would like to help, we will provide you with a lunch and t-shirt for free, yes for free! We had over 100 volunteers last year but we are growing every year, so if you are the least bit interested please apply and see what happens.
Awesome! You’re in luck then. If you are an especially curious person and want to learn in depth about each individual event there are a few links below.
