About the Event

The annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering’s signature EXPO DAY (Saturday, March 2) will be held at a new location this year – Snapdragon Stadium and will be a full day of STEAM fun provided by hundreds of San Diego area businesses, schools, libraries, and museums. Admission is free for all and open to the public, and no registration is required.

This year’s event is presented by Illumina Corporate Foundation and will feature more than 100 booths. New to the event this year:

College and Career Connections: This will foster awareness and create meaningful connections for local middle and high school students who will have the opportunity to meet with over 20 higher education and industry partners. A special ‘Understanding College Life’ will take place at 2:30 p.m.
The Art Pavilion: Students and community groups will showcase their creative expressions infusing the STEM experience with artistic flair. This exciting new space will encapsulate the powerful synergy between science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

There will be dozens of returning hands-on learning experiences, interactive activities, and experiments to inspire kids (and kids at heart!) to engage in all things science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).

Two main stages will offer a variety of performances. From math raps sung by The Music Notes to a Rainforest Rescue from the Zovargo Animal Show, there is STEAM fun for everyone. Other notable events include a High-Temperature Fusion show from General Atomics, Ms. Smarty-Plants cooling the climate, an SD Mad Science-Fire & Ice performance, Fleet Science Center’s spectacle: Don’t Try This at Home, a special STEMusic performance by Ron Moye, and a TEDxkids@ELCajon presentation.
