The What If festival is an annual event held in downtown Colorado Springs where engineers, inventors, and others inspired by STEM can demonstrate and promote what they do. Along with these individuals, creativity comes to life through artists, musicians, and culinary experts. By being involved in this event, we have a chance to spread the word about FIRST and show what high-schoolers can do with STEM.
