What we’re about

NWA TechFest is a volunteer group that puts on in-person events to facilitate STEM education and community in Northwest Arkansas. We primarily hold a yearly convention in Springdale, but are dipping our toes into pop-up events to promote community interaction post-pandemic.

Our meetups will have various focuses including:

  • networking
  • technical knowledge transfer
  • business and education opportunities in NWA

Who should join this group?

Anyone who is interested in STEM education and careers in Northwest Arkansas should join our group. We can always use more volunteers to help us organize or promote the events that we put on, but even hanging around to show interest would be great. Members of this group do not need to have a technical background and there is no ongoing cost to be a part of this community.

Who supports this group?

NWA TechFest is a volunteer-run group that accepts donations from local companies and organizations in pursuit of throwing community-oriented events (mostly our yearly conference). These groups have no control over what NWA TechFest promotes and NWA TechFest does not represent these groups in any matter. NWA TechFest's list of sponsors can be found at:
