About the Festivals

Our Mission
Our Mission
Our mission is to create meaningful experiences that promote a culture of lifelong learning and career readiness with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).

We are focused on student preparedness and facilitate collaboration among industry partners, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and the community.
The Issue
The Issue
In South Carolina and across the nation, business leaders are struggling to meet the current and projected demand for jobs in STEM. Companies will not invest in a community unless they are confident that they can find the talent they need to stay competitive. Only 26% of South Carolina students are graduating with the degrees and certification necessary to obtain these jobs. Students' lagging performance in K–12 math and science, particularly among minorities, is a critical reason why.
The Solution
The Solution
The good news is that the effective programs like iMAGINE Upstate’s STEAM Festival and iMAGINE STEAM Festival in Rock Hill are beginning to fill in the gaps in the STEM pipeline in South Carolina. iMAGINE partners with major South Carolina employers to identify high demand career pathways and showcase them to a new generation of innovators in exciting ways. Through interactive learning experiences, iMAGINE STEAM Festivals spark the imaginations of PreK-12 students and fosters their aspirations to pursue 21st century STEM careers.
