Expo Performer News

Steve Spangler returns to the Expo Stage!

Steve Spangler – known by fans worldwide for his wildly funny, unconventional and engaging science demonstrations on stage, TV and other venues – first came to fame in 2005 with his Mentos Diet Coke Experiment in which he taught millions via YouTube how to turn an ordinary bottle of soda into an erupting geyser of fun. This further propelled him as a leading authority in STEM education, specifically how to excite and inspire both kids and adults in science exploration through creative, interactive activities. His credentials are a testament to his popularity and effectiveness as a STEM advocate and science communicator: With more than 1,600 television appearances to his credit, Steve is a regular guest on the Ellen Show  where she dubbed him  America’s Science Teacher. He is also the host of the nationally syndicated television series DIY Sci where viewers learn how to use do-it-yourself experiments to amaze friends. See Steve back on stage at the Expo 2020!

Sponsor Highlight 

NCR Foundation Tells Why it Served as a Sponsor of X-STEM DC! Enthusiastic students in Washington, DC heard from an exclusive group of visionaries at X-STEM, an extreme STEM Symposium, held on March 19 designed for high-energy inspiration in STEM careers.  Learn from Yvonne Whitaker, NCR Foundation Lead, about why NCR served as a sponsor of this pivotal event. 

Businesses need the next generation of STEAM-educated and prepared students to extend their success. Currently, there is a projected mismatch between available jobs in tech-related fields and qualified workers to fill them – a problem that early education and enthusiasm can offset. Additionally, by diversifying their workforce, businesses can introduce new perspectives and approaches to solving problems and appeal to a wider range of customers and partners."
