SANDWICH – An annual Cape Cod event to showcase science, technology, engineering and math returns to Sandwich High School and STEM Academy for the second time this Saturday.

STEM Journey V, which is designed to create more interest in STEM learning, features more than 40 hands-on STEM related activities and exhibitors, local resources, student projects, along with a mini college fair.

The event will focus this year on robotics and the keynote address, “Robotics in the 21st Century,” will be delivered by Mashpee High School graduate Andrew Reichel a Robotics Engineer at iRobot.

Jack Driscoll from PID Analyzers, a local technology company, said the goal of the event is to create more interest in STEM fields.

“It should be a really good event because there is a lot going on in the high schools with robotics,” said Driscoll.

“In fact we read over the Sandwich STEM Academy and there is usually half a dozen or more robots in the room when we meet there, so it should be a very interesting topic,” he said.

The free STEM Journey IV is open to students of all ages and runs from 11 AM through 3:30 PM.
