On Saturday, October 12, 2019, The Help Group and STEM3 Academy, the only K-12 school in the nation to provide a STEM curriculum to students with social and learning differences, held their first Very Special Innovation Fair in Orange County. The free, family-friendly event was a showcase of discovery and imagination that was equal parts science fair, high-tech exhibition, art show, and community carnival. Over 750 people were in attendance!
Inspired by the maker movement, the Very Special Innovation Fair included activities and experiences for children of all ages and abilities. Attendees had hands-on experiences in a range of STEM-related fields, including rocketry, robotics, and virtual reality from some of the region’s most innovative companies and organizations – Microsoft, Code Ninjas, Civil Air Patrol, Barboza Space Center, ISS-Above, DroneBase, Teradyne, and many more!

Lastly, a huge thank you to our sponsors and partners, including Farmers Insurance, Northrop Grumman, Toms, and Parenting OC.
