STEMAZing Saturday

STEMAZing Saturday is a free event for PreK-12th grade students. Simply gather the materials listed for the STEM explorations and join us on Zoom or in person with other students from around the country and sometimes beyond. STEMAZing Saturday will start at 9:00 am Arizona time and end at 11:00 am Arizona time. (Teachers are also welcome to join us!)

This means our start time will change when those of you who do observe Daylight Savings jump this way and that an hour. Arizona is currently is always on Mountain Standard Time. This is currently aligned with Pacific Daylight Time until the rest of you return to standard time. You can verify the start time for your location using:
