STEMosphere® highlights include core sampling of planets with NASA, building masterpieces with KEVA planks, interactive 3D-learning programs and technology by ViziTech USA, ingenious and creative activities by Destination Imagination, learning the science of tennis, insects, enviroscaping and Orlando Science Center and Orlando Museum of Art exhibits.

Share Fair Nation, whose mission is to teach and inspire educators in emerging practices for a 21st Century workforce, was created eight years ago by philanthropists John and Carrie Morgridge of the Morgridge Family Foundation in Denver, Colorado. The couple also provided UCF with a major gift in 2011 to establish the Morgridge International Reading Center.
“Share Fair Nation Orlando is an exciting and unique opportunity for teachers and students to gain a new and inspired perspective on teaching and learning in the 21st Century,” said Share Fair Nation Orlando’s site director Brenda S. Thompson. “During this amazing event, participants interact with highly qualified innovators in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for connections among these disciplines that promote lifelong learning.”
