You and your budding scientists can learn and see all the things at a huge STEM festival hosted by the Tucson Hebrew Academy Sunday.

Seriously. All. The. Things.

This is the fourth year The Hebrew Academy has hosted the festival and this will be its biggest one yet.

You can learn how planes fly, climb into the cockpit of a Cessna and tour a Lifeline medical evacuation helicopter. 

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum will be there with free animal shows, where the kids can meet a porcupine and a skunk.

Cockroaches will be there for you to cuddle, if that's your thing. 

There will be rockets, drones, telescopes and yummy treats baked by the sun. 

The STEM festival is being paired with the THA Health & Wellness Fair this year, which means more hands-on experiences for you.


One of the many hands-on activities at The Hebrew Academy's annual STEM Festival. 

You'll learn about what happens in an ambulance to save lives and take a free introduction to CPR class. See how germs are spread when you take part in a glow-germ experiment, tour an ambulance and see a real human brain.

Some exhibitors attending are Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Rincon Fire Department, Arizona Department of Public Safety and Air Rescue, STEMAZing Project, Tu Nidito, Sonoran Glass School, Tucson Police Department K-9 Unit, Tucson Village Farm, UA Insect Discovery, Tucson Wildlife Center, Women in Science and Engineering, UA Bio5 and many more.
