STEM Nola founder and director Calvin Mackie was born in Gert Town - 2 blocks down from where BOO!Dat23 was held. He jumped on the opportunity to have his organization get involved with our youth attendees creating their own slime and doing experiments with dry ice.
"The turnout for the event was great and we were thrilled to see so many students and community professionals in attendance. The interactive STEM activity was a hit, and we received many positive comments from attendees about how much they enjoyed the event.
This is a part of our belief here at STEM NOLA, training our scholars from the neck up so that they can be competitive in the ever-changing global market! Thank you again for working with STEM NOLA to bring high-quality programming to the children of our community and we look forward to working with you again soon! "
