Science, science, and more science!

That’s what attendees can expect at KC STEM Fest, an event at Union Station that will involve over 230 K-12 students from Frontier Schools. Beginning at 12:15 p.m. on Friday, March 16, students will showcase unique, hands-on science projects in a variety of fields, including life science, physical science, and chemistry.

In addition to the hands-on experience, KC STEM Fest will match students with more than 10 community science partners including BIO Kansas, KC Area of Life and Science Institute, and PITSCO. The admission-free fest is open to the public, though attendees will have to opportunity to assist with fundraising efforts.

Jennifer Watson, director of Public Info at Frontier Schools, said that she anticipates a boisterous atmosphere at the event.

“The atmosphere will be very festival-like,” Watson said. “There’ll be lots of fundraisers, and fun things like ice cream and popcorn!”

Any donations offered during KC STEM Fest will be tax-free. Individuals who donate to STEM Fest will be supporting Frontier students who love science.

“There are not enough college students filling STEM-related fields after college,” said Watson.

Frontier Schools is serving more than 1,600 students at four locations in Kansas City. To learn more about Frontier Schools and its four campuses, please visit
