We are a group of individuals with a passion for improving our community through informal and formal education. We are parents and grandparents who happen to be teachers, engineers, business owners, politicians, realtors, anthropologists, chemists, microbiologists, quilters, wood-workers who have a desire to serve our community. We are not an exclusive group, there are no formal requirements for membership.
The Fernley STEM Council was founded in 2013 by individuals who envisioned the celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a community in the form of a “giant science fair”. From that dream the Fernley STEM Council was born to support not only the annual Fernley STEM Festival, but also other STEM initiatives in our community.
