The 10th Annual Expo Day and Festival of Science and Engineering Week will return to San Diego from March 3 through 11. The events throughout the week allow people of all ages to explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and dynamic speakers. Expo Day, the official kick-off celebration, will take place at Petco Park on Saturday, March 3. Festival week continues with eight days of learning, interaction, and behind-the-scenes opportunities for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, adults, and families alike to ignite their passion for STEM education. Most events are free and open to the public.

For the second year, the festival will include the STEM in Your Backyard series in various communities throughout San Diego. In addition to interactive experiments and activities, this series includes a student project showcase and exhibits from local industry research institutions and universities, all designed to engage the entire family in STEM.
