We would like to sincerely thank our sponsors for having such a caring and giving heart because without their financial support for this event it would not be possible. With your donations, we are able to provide not only a day of fun for the entire family, but it also provides an opportunity for children in the community to learn about STEM and to never stop asking questions. Thank you!

With about 12,000 employees located in Wichita, they are a large presence in the community when it comes to support. They have been a major sponsor for this event for many years and this will mark the third year that they have been our presenting sponsor. We couldn’t do this without them!
Gold Sponsor: Westar Energy
Westar Energy, initially organized as Kansas Gas and Electric Company, started in 1909 to serve communities around Kansas, including Wichita. By 1992, they served over half a million customers. In 2002, they officially become Westar Energy and became publicly traded. A large part of their company Westar Wind, a sustainable energy program created in 1999, now supplies the equivalent of a third of the energy supplied to homes, farms, and businesses. They focus on allowing this sustainability option, while boasting the minimal impact to the users’ bills. Westar has been a staple in Wichita for over 100 years and we are proud to partner with them for the Expo this year.
