Wow! We made it!
We want to extend a GIGANTIC "THANK YOU!" to everyone who participated in the 2013 San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering!
Whether it was building incredibly cool futurebots or learning how to conduct crime scene investigations, we had a FANTASTIC TIME promoting science & engineering in America's Finest City. This town ROCKS!
Through your support, the 2013 San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering did more than promote the tremendous role our city plays in the world of science and engineering -- you helped us to awaken a greater interest in STEM and STEAM education for literally thousands of students across all socio-economic backgrounds . The future is looking awfully bright from where we're standing!
Keep watching here for a wrap-up report on the success of the 2013 Festival in the coming weeks -- and get ready to mark your calendars for the next Festival. Here's to an even greater 2014!
These one-hour seminars at the March 23 EXPO DAY are designed to not only be fun for you, but an hour full of teaching ideas and projects that will get your students engaged and enjoying learning about science and engineering.
One STEM professional will facilitate each program and offer teacher attendees a chance to continue the fun at the appropriate EXPO DAY booth! Sign up now to attend the program that’s designed for your classroom! Seating is limited to 30 teachers per workshop.
Made possible by:
The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering’s Home Run Science Challenge, presented by the UC San Diego Department of Bioengineering, is an EXPO DAY activity which challenges students to “run the bases” by learning key science concepts at special EXPO DAY exhibits. To complete the challenge activity and receive a prize, students must visit five featured exhibits and verbally answer a question on the science or engineering content to receive a stamp on their worksheet. Students will retain their completed challenge worksheet to bring into class and validate their participation, making this an excellent opportunity for an assignment or extra credit. This activity has an expected target audience of grades 4-8, but is adaptable for all-ages participation.
