This Saturday, June 23, North Laguna Park will be transformed into a “tech wonderland” for all ages to enjoy during the first-ever H@ck the Park Fest, a free and family friendly event focusing on all things S.T.E.M. (shorthand for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Organized by Square Root Academy, a Sacramento nonprofit focused on teaching at risk youth about S.T.E.M., H@ck the Park Fest will feature a drone racing light show by Intel on the “InnoStage,” as well as dozens of “InnoBooths” where you can interact with vendors, plus Science Fair Exhibits by scholars from the Elk Grove, Twin Rivers and Sacramento City Unified school districts, as well as food trucks and much more. So come one, come all, especially you builders, inventors, makers, thinkers and tech-minded folks—you don’t want to miss this unique event. The festivities will run from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. North Laguna Park is located at 6400 Jacinto Ave., Sacramento. For more information, visit, or shoot an email to
