SDSquared's STEM-A-Palooza!

Last Year our STEM-A-Palooza was such a huge success we will be doing it all over again and this time even bigger and better.  Coming to you in March 2018...stay tuned for details!

We are also excited to announce that we have packaged this event as a stand alone product for schools and organizations who want to raise money and get kids excited about STEM!

If you are interested, see below for a description of the event and contact our Executive Director, Krista Gauthier, at for more information!


As Neil deGrasse Tyson said, “When you are a kid, you are born a scientist.” What better way to help fuel that inborn passion for science than hosting an SDSquared STEM-A-Palooza!  STEM-A-Palooza is a STEM festival and fundraiser that includes building challenges, STEM demonstrations and more…all designed to ignite that spark!

At STEM-A-Palooza stem enthusiasts of all ages get to watch science demonstrations, hear speakers and conduct experiments. In addition, they have the option to participate in three different challenges:

1.      Spaghetti and Marshmallow Challenge – teams will be given 15 minutes to try and build the tallest tower;

2.     Paper Clip SailBoat Challenge – teams will have 15 minutes to build a paper sailboat that will travel the farthest and carry the most cargo;

3.     PomPom Cannon Challenge – teams will have 15 minutes to design a cannon out a Styrofoam cup and that can fire a pom pom accurately at a target.
