As a member society of the Affiliated Societies Council of Dayton, we participate annually at Techfest by providing hands-on activities through a booth at the event to all members of the community. This event is held typically in mid-February at Sinclair Community College, and we reach a large number of people annually through this event; it is arguably the largest outreach activity by our society. This is a great family activity and we encourage everyone to attend.

Tech Fest 2020 will take place the weekend of February 15th and 16th at the Ponitz Center of Sinclair University in downtown Dayton.

Where: Sinclair Community College 444 W. Third Street Sinclair Community College Dayton, OH

When: Saturday, February 15, 2020 - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m AND Sunday, February 16, 2020 - 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We need volunteers to staff the exhibit. This event is one of the best chemistry outreach programs in the Dayton area and a lot of fun for families and exhibitors.

Tech Fest will be open from 10AM to 6PM on Saturday, February 15th and 11AM to 5PM on Sunday, February 16th. We need volunteers to cover 2 hour "shifts" during these hours.
Thanks in advance for your interest and support of this exhibit!

Last year, over 4000 visitors attended this event.


We went through over 500+ iterations of our demos to thousands of Techfest goers this year! Thanks to the 32 volunteers, students and professionals alike, that kept our booth running smooth throughout Saturday and Sunday. This is our largest annual outreach event and we are proud of our members' commitment to engagement and spreading the gospel of science to our local youths.

For inquiries involving this event please contact Dr. Kara Martin, Techfest Coordinator.
