Sponsorship & Support

The AOC STEM Outreach program aims to inspire hundreds of students every year to explore and pursue academic and professional futures related to the electromagnetic spectrum. This is a major undertaking between the AOC, industry sponsors and exhibitors, and local volunteers. You can check out a few ways you can contribute to the success of this vital program below:

Host a Booth or Display

Booths and displays are the lifeblood of the program. Organizations, companies, schools, and even individuals have helped to support the program and inspire students in years past. Do you have a display or booth you'd like to bring? Contact Blain Bekele for more information.

You can check out some of last year's displays here.

Industry Sponsorship

There's no such thing as a free lunch. Except for STEM attendees, they get a free lunch. You can help support the AOC and local students through monetary sponsorship. Support helps get the students to the event, supports all booths and displays, and assists in providing scholarship, mentorship, and internship opportunities.

Individual Support

Sponsorship isn't limited to big corporations. Individuals can help as well. Donations of any amount are accepted and deeply appreciated. You can help sponsor a single student, and you may be responsible for changing their life!

One of the most important ways you can support the STEM program is by giving your time. Volunteers are needed to man one of 10 interactive educational stations, as well as lead groups of students. For a full list of options on how you can volunteer this year click here.
