Getting Arizonans Excited And Involved In STEM Fields

Science, technology, engineering and math, the so-called STEM fields, are often considered the future, not just in Arizona, but in a lot of communities across the country. The Arizona SciTech Festival hopes to get residents here excited about them.

Jeremy Babendure, executive director of the Arizona SciTech Festival, talked about this year’s events. Darcy Renfro, the director of the Arizona STEM Network at Science Foundation Arizona, also joined him.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
