Techfest

As a member society of the Affiliated Societies Council of Dayton, we participate annually at Techfest by providing hands-on activities through a booth at the event to all members of the community. This event is held typically in mid-February at Sinclair Community College, and we reach a large number of people annually through this event; it is arguably the largest outreach activity by our society. This is a great family activity and we encourage everyone to attend.

Tech Fest 2017 will take place the weekend of February 18th and 19th at the Ponitz Center of Sinclair University in downtown Dayton.   This year’s theme was “Materials and Manufacturing”.

We need volunteers to staff the exhibit. This event is one of the best chemistry outreach programs in the Dayton area and a lot of fun for families and exhibitors.

Tech Fest will be open from 10AM to 6PM on Saturday, February 18th and 11AM to 5PM on Sunday, February 19th. We need volunteers to cover 2 hour "shifts" during these hours. If you are interested in helping, please provide your name and availability here.

Thanks in advance for your interest and support of this exhibit!

Last year, a total of ~2400 visitors attended this event.

For inquiries involving this event please contact Prof. Amit Sharma, Techfest Coordinator.
