Science education and science driven policy benefits everyone in our community. Rochester has a vibrant science community with several nationally recognized universities and a multiple thriving technological based industries making Rochester one of the most science friendly regions in the country. Yet, we recognize that some communities in our area lack access to to science education. ROC-MFS is currently partnering with local industries, STEM educators, and science advocacy groups to share our passions for science and STEM education with all of Rochester.

Each event is unique and in collaboration with several local partners. These activities could range from 3D printing, live animal demonstrations, building machines, industrial robot demonstrations, holograms, creating tornadoes, or other activities. All events are designed for you and your children to have fun with a little bit of science education snuck in in the process. Please come support ROC-MFS and our partners at one or all of these events. All events are free and open to the public.
