The 2019 Shoreline STEM Festival was a family friendly fun-filled event that was held at Shoreline Community College on Saturday, June 1st where the communities of Shoreline and surrounding areas came to participate in various STEM activities and demonstrations.

Student projects were on display surrounded by hands-on activities like building DNA Marshmallows with the Young Women in Bio group, 3-D Pen creations with the Shoreline Library, to kids testing PH levels and playing in muddy sand to see how they can alter stream flow.

In the middle of the exhibitors and student projects in the PUB building, you could grab a seat in the Trivia room put on by the Shorewood Math Olympiad for some entertaining fun with candy prizes or grab a slice of pizza or bakery treat from the Shorecrest Technology Student Association and then head over to the awesome robotics display in the SCC gym put on by Shoreline Robotics Society, TEAM Pronto from Shoreline High schools as well as Robototes from Sammamish High school.

While the judges were busy tallying the scores from the student science projects, Mad Science put on an awesome fire and ice show for the captivated audience! Photos from this year’s festival can be found here.
