5000 Watts was an ELECTRICFYING Experience!

October 08, 2019

We had an ELECTRIFYING TIME at 5000 Watts!  We were so happy to see community members, scholars, and Academy partners come out for the big night! We appreciate everyone's support of this event and the Academy. A special shoutout to our partners for bringing out their installations for everyone to enjoy!  Our installation, Making Room, was also a hit, and our scholar's had a great time helping build it by programming the LED lights in the clouds.  Thank you to everyone for coming out and if you didn't make it be sure to check out our Instagram highlights for a recap of the festival! Proceeds from this event will go straight into furthering our mission to engineer equity in STEM education.

We'll see you next year for round two of 5000 Watts!
