I am currently working with the events department planning a STEMEXPO here at the Speedway. It has been great to get an inside track and work with their team to see what all goes into an event this size.
I have learned the biggest challenge when putting on an event this size is getting people to commit. I am currently helping secure vendors for the event and promote the event to several school districts.
This is a great learning experience. I feel I will be well prepared to plan my Ten80 sanctioned event for my project in February.
