From engineers to artists, from scientists to coders, women and girls are learning, excelling, and engaging in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)!


On Saturday, May 30th, NHS hosted our 8th Annual Multicultural Festival, Full STEAM Ahead: Celebrating Women & Girls in S.T.E.A.M.  The festival invited families and children of all ages to explore hands-on activities, exciting games, and inspirational performers geared toward highlighting professional women in S.T.E.A.M.


Bringing neighbors an opportunity to come together, build community, and have fun, NHS strives to provide a space for people of all ages to enjoy and celebrate all that New Haven has to offer. Admission is free and includes games, food, and activities. Nearly 100 guests attended the Festival and enjoyed free food, games, music, face painting, and science experiments. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for this great event. 


Thank you to our sponsors as well: Yale University, Yale New Haven Hospital, Start Community Bank, Webster Bank, University of New Haven and Southern Connecticut State University.
