"To esteem is to respect or admire,“ said Williams. “So, while you are getting excited about the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (eSTEAM) festival, you can admire the beauty of this region, feel good about what you're learning, and ultimately your eSTEAM will be boosted in Sumter."

The entertainment and STEAM adventure is sure to provide family fun to everyone. It brings together educational entities, industries, economic and community developers and STEM Organizations.

“The purpose is to expose festival participants to advances and opportunities in these ever-growing areas through interactive exhibits, fun filled displays and hands-on activities,” said Williams.

eSTEAM Sumter was rescheduled due to Hurricane Ian, but will now be held Saturday, November 12, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. along Main Street in downtown Sumter.
