Annual QCESC STEM Celebration Feb. 24, 2022

Registration is open and we are excited to announce our keynote this year will be Jahmy J. Hindman, Chief Technical Officer for John Deere. “60 years of STEM: Informing our Future” is the title for his presentation.

Come join us to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) accomplishments from the community over the past year. As part of QCESC’s 60th anniversary, the event is returning to a full sit-down meal. The event is being hosted at the new Bend Event Center in East Moline with catering with several entrée choices with appetizers being provided by The Combine, a Bass Street Restaurant.

The 60th Annual QCESC STEM Celebration provides a great opportunity to network with others who are connected to STEM. It also showcases many of the great efforts and accomplishments of educators, professionals, and students in the region.

This annual event will award over 20 STEM scholarships to the top local high school seniors along with QCESC STEM awards for Engineers, Scientists, Teachers, Societies, and Volunteers.

The event will be held during Engineers Week (E-week) on February 24, 2022. Cost will be $50 per person or $35 for full-time students.
