Michigan Tech Mind Trekkers logo

Mind Trekkers is a nationally-acclaimed traveling STEM roadshow bringing high-energy, hands-on, STEM festivals to communities around the country. Guided by Michigan Tech students, participants will discover firsthand the awe and power of science through experimentation. From being inside a bubble, to skewering a balloon without popping it, to playing a piano made of bananas--Mind Trekkers serves to bring communities together to support an educational ecosystem and strong future workforce in STEM.

"The best part is the enthusiasm the Michigan Tech students have for the subject matter and their excitement about geeking out to our middle schoolers. I think its great modeling on top of content delivery."
