OCTOBER 4-6, 2024 – Reno Stead Airport

The GRADD-NVBAA STEM Discovery Zone
is thrilled to be returning for another year in Reno!

This 60th celebration event makes for an incredible launching pad to celebrate all that has taken place in aviation development over the last six decades, as well as building excitement for the future of the industry.

Our hands-on activities are meticulously designed to enlighten, captivate, and spur the future trailblazers in aviation and innovation through the lens of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). They also provide a nudge towards the exploration of rewarding opportunities in the aviation and aerospace industries.

The Reno Air Racing Association is overjoyed to welcome back GRADD, a pioneer in drone technology and training, and the Nevada Business Aviation Association (NVBAA) STEM Discovery Zone to the Air Races for the ninth year in a row. The GRADD-NVBAA STEM Discovery Zone – known for being one of the largest, most sophisticated and fun STEM attractions in the country – plays a pivotal role in attracting youth from Nevada and beyond towards the wonders of scientific exploration and aviation technology.

Led by a passionate and innovative team of engineers, pilots, and military veterans, the STEM Discovery Zone promises to make learning an exciting and fun-filled experience at this historic STEM-based event. The STEM Zone’s appeal is not just limited to the young ones. All attendees of the Air Show are invited to experience the amazing activities.
