Festival of Science & Engineering
The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering is set to take place March 14-21, consisting of a Festival Week (March 14-20) — six days of learning, interaction, and behind-the-scenes opportunities for families to ignite the love for science, technology, engineering, and math. It all leads up to a daylong celebration at Petco Park on Saturday, March 21. Expo Day is the festival’s signature event, featuring more than 130 local businesses, corporations, and organizations providing interactive, hands-on science, technology, engineering and math exhibits, and activities to budding K-12 science lovers. Events are free and open to the public.
The mission of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering is to engage kids in science and engineering, expand the public’s understanding of the relevancy of science and engineering in everyday lives, illuminate why the United States must maintain its leadership role in science and technology, and work with parents and teachers to inspire today’s students to become tomorrow’s science, technology, engineering, and mathematical (STEM) innovators.
