Virginia Tech Maker Festival 2018 
The Virginia Tech Maker Festival is entering it’s 4th Year. For 3 years, the Virginia Tech Maker Festival has hosted its STEM festival at the Virginia Tech Northern Virginia Center in Falls Church, VA. The goal of this event is to increase STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) learning in all ages, nationalities, genders, and socio-economic backgrounds.
Virginia Tech is one of the leading research universities in the country specializing in Engineering, Science, and Math. Our very own students and Professors discovered the lead in the water in Flint, Michigan. With our partnerships, and laboratories, Virginia Tech wants to expand the STEM growth in the National Capital Region with the Virginia Tech Maker Festival. We hope to inspire future generations of Science, technology, engineering and math students, researchers, professors, leaders, and beyond.
We will have robots, experiments, and interactive games. Come join the fun, & Register Now!  Plus it’s FREE!

You are cordially invited to The HBCU Museum's first Founders Day and HBCU Day hosted at the museum dedicated to historically black colleges and universities. As you are aware, HBCUs were designated as one of the nation's 11 most endangered historic sites by the National Trust for Historic Places. 

Our goal is to highlight the accomplishments of not only HBCUs, but some of their most accomplished graduates. The main purpose is to support under-served students interested in attending HBCUs by offering scholarships to qualified under privileged applicants and provide community outreach programs. In addition, the museum will serve as a platform to support community involvement, events, networking, and higher education that will strengthen and sustain our community.
The HBCU Museum is extending an invitation with a cause for a powerful purpose. We would like to invite your students and staff to our First Weekly events dedicated to Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow’s generations #YTT.
