2024 Science and Technology Expo

April 19 & 20, 2024

Isothermal's annual Science and Technology Expo will feature up to 40 interactive exhibits that will cover virtually every aspect of science and technology to introduce students to careers in STEM fields. Attendees are immersed in a day-long exploration of how science and technology affects our lives.

Students will learn from hands-on activities at demonstrations and will also enjoy an interactive science show.

Part of the statewide North Carolina Science Festival, the college has hosted this event for 10 years. This year we invite all 6th grade students from Rutherford and Polk counties to our campus to take part. Our hope is to inspire young minds and showcase many exciting STEM opportunities available in our area.

About the North Carolina Science Festival   

Founded in 2010, the North Carolina Science Festival is the first statewide science festival in the United States. Through a series of community-based events each April (hosted by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses, and other local organizations), the Festival celebrates the economic, educational, and cultural impacts of science in North Carolina. It is an initiative of Morehead Planetarium & Science Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information, please visit
