“So much science! Love all the various exhibits and the students and volunteers who helped get our kids animated over science!”

“Our children, who love STEM, said it was one of the best days of the year!”

“Thank you! We so appreciate this event and it is super important. We would love to share back with the volunteers just how meaningful this event is.”

These are just a few of the positive comments we received on the TouchTomorrow post-event survey! This year’s festival took place on Saturday, April 2, at Polar Park after a 2-year in-person hiatus. Thanks to the dedication of WPI faculty, staff, and students, we welcomed nearly 6,500 guests to explore and become excited about STEM. Fifty-six WPI-sponsored exhibits and 42 community and industry partners provided impactful activities and demonstrations that inspired confidence and new curiosities in students K-12. The WPI Pep Band brought new energy to the day, and the addition of the Innovation Showcase on Polar Park’s jumbotron provided an opportunity for area students to share their ideas on how they would like “touch tomorrow” in a positive way, and highlighted Worcester Public School students’ digital artwork. It was a wonderful day of STEM learning and fun and we surely inspired some future goats! Be sure to visit our Facebook page for great photos!
