Kids from across the District will be celebrating all things science, technology, engineering and math on Saturday with the DC STEM Festival.

Through presentations and activities run by students as well as organizations like the NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences, the event aims “to increase awareness of the critical role science and other STEM fields play in our world every day.” Held at Harmony DC Public Charter Schools in Eckington, organizers promise the presentations and activities will be fun for all ages.

It also has just about the coolest logo we’ve ever seen. See for yourself:
