Florida STEAMposium 2021

Postponed

Official Statement from Florida Department of Education:
"These are exciting times in the world of STEAM in the state of Florida.  As the plans for this summer continue to evolve, the Department has come to the difficult decision of postponing the STEAMposium event scheduled for June 22-24, 2021. This is not a cancellation, but a postponement.  We are very invested in the STEAMposium as we have grown this project over the past few years."
