The 2016 Sci://Tech Exposition Day took place Saturday, January 30, 2016 at the Lone Star Convention and Expo Center in Conroe, Texas. Sci://Tech is organized by the Education for Tomorrow Alliance (EfTA), and is one of the largest science and technology fairs in the nation with events spanning four weekends.
