We couldn't find that.
Let's go back home and try again.

San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering


“It’s never too late to fall in love with science and engineering,” says Steve Briggs, a plant biologist and faculty member at UC San Diego, who started out as an English major until a botany class convinced him to switch his focus. Briggs is also chief scientist for the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering, the largest celebration of innovation and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education in Southern California. Organized by UC San Diego, the festival offers free countywide events March 17-24, and culminates on Saturday, March 24, with Petco Park’s Expo Day, expected to draw more than 20,000 kids of all ages and their families to interact with hundreds of activities, enjoy shows, and talk to scientists and engineers. Because there is a nationwide shortage of college graduates entering science, technology, engineering, and math careers, the festival’s mission is to inspire San Diego’s youth to get involved in these rewarding fields. A complete schedule of festival activities is available online. (www.sdsciencefestival.com)   JANE SHIOMI
