Ed Expo Northeast Ohio

At the upcoming Education & STEM Expo 2019, co-presented by Northeast Ohio Parent magazine and Ohio Tuition Trust, which takes place Sunday, Oct. 6 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., families will have the opportunity to enjoy hands-on activities and entertainment, in addition to meeting with dozens of area schools all under one roof.

Some of the free fun will include:

Cleveland Metroparks
11-11:45 a.m.

Cleveland Metroparks offers families access to five nature centers, free family programming, and a variety of homeschool classes, workshops and camps. North Chagrin Nature Center manager Bethany Majeksi will share how families with children of all ages can take advantage of the healthy and fun benefits provided by outdoor nature experiences.  

Mad Science of Northeast Ohio Science Show: Fire and Ice
Noon-12:30 p.m.

Explore the concepts of matter and pressure. Audience members watch as “Eggbert” gets “pushed around” by air pressure. Volunteers even help Mad Science reps appear to defy gravity with columns of air. A series of really “cool” (get it?!) dry ice experiments will include shivering quarters, giant burps, bubbling potions and more.
Dr. U.R. Awesome
1-2 p.m.
There’s more science fun!
Engage in experiments with electricity, Alka Seltzer Rockets, Lemon Suds, Torn and Restored Paper Tear, and more.  
TGA Premier Sports of Southwest Cleveland will be onsite as well with some interactive physical movement!
TGA Premier Sports combines athletics, academics and life lessons to create fun and engaging youth programs. It incorporates station-based athletic skill development activities, STEAM Labs to explore educational concepts through sports, and key life lessons including teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance and leadership.  
Dr. Sylvia Rimm, psychologist, author, speaker, parenting specialist and gifted children advocate, will be onsite with Menlo Park Academy to answer any family questions. Stop by the Menlo Park Academy table for a visit throughout the event!
