Zovio, an education technology services company, is partnering with the Arizona SciTech Festival and the SciTech Institute™ to encourage STEM exploration and education in Arizona. As a Silver Sponsor of the 2020 Arizona SciTech Festival, which runs from January 25 to April 30, 2020, Zovio is helping to foster STEM education in more than 80 cities and towns statewide.
Now in its ninth year, the SciTech Festival isn’t a single-day event. It is the country’s third-largest science festival with more than 800 organizations partnering to present more than 2,300 events throughout the year. The festival offers abundant opportunities for kids, teens and adults to explore STEM across the state through interactive events, workshops, exhibitions, displays, lectures and tours. Best of all, SciTech events are free!
The Arizona SciTech Institute completed its first training event for level 2 Chief Science Officers (CSOs) at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe. Students from existing CSO programs received training on expanding the reach and depth of their initiatives.
