The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering Returns With a New Location

Calling all tinkerers, explorers, stargazers, dreamers, and adventurers! The San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering EXPO DAY is back, and this year, they’re headed for Snapdragon Stadium!

The festival is the largest event of its kind in Southern California. It’s a collective effort between industry, business leaders, government, community organizations, public outreach centers, academia, schools and school districts, and parents.

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.

On-site Activities

  • DNA fun and genomics education with Illumina Corporate Foundation
  • The pre-K zone is filled with engaging activities for little learners
  • Virtual reality experiences
  • Reptiles and furry friends with Zovargo, Ecovivarium, and Parks & Rec
  • Rockets and explosions with General Atomics
  • Make slime, learn about underwater sea life, play with robots, test an electric bike, and more!

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.

New 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 PM.

The Art Pavilion

Students and community groups will showcase their creative expressions, infusing the STEAM experience with artistic flair. This exciting new space will encapsulate the powerful synergy between science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

See you there!

The mission of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering is to engage kids in science and engineering.
