Cancelled for Saturday, April 18, 2020 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
In keeping with Governor Whitmer’s executive order banning all gatherings of more than 250 people, we are canceling the 2020 STEAM Showcase. Although the executive order will lapse before April 18, we have decided to cancel anyway in order to protect our students, staff, and community and to give our presenters as much notice as possible. When schools re-open, we will contact businesses who have already donated to discuss options such as returning the money, applying the donation to a 2021 Showcase, or finding other ways to support STEAM education in our community. We thank everyone who supported the STEAM Showcase, now and in the past. Please stay healthy!

The Thumb Area STEAM Showcase is looking for projects, displays, and presentations from local schools that showcase the excellent STEAM activities being done in districts across the county. Classroom teachers, leaders of projects or clubs, or any school group related to science, technology, engineering, the arts, or mathematics can apply.
Thumb Area STEAM Showcase was formally known as Embracing Our Earth Festival. For a quick peak of the past event, enjoy this video.
