The 10th annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering, presented by the Illumina Foundation, is returning for its highly anticipated Expo Day.

The festival, hosted by the Biocom Institute, once again begins with the family-favorite Expo Day on Saturday, March 3, at PETCO Park.

Expo Day is the official kick-off celebration for festival week featuring hundreds of exhibitors and gives attendees a major preview of what’s to come to area businesses, schools, libraries and museums throughout the county during Festival Week.

Expo Day is free and open to the public. In 2017, the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering’s Expo Day broke attendance records, hosting 26,143 children, parents and STEM enthusiasts.

After Expo Day the fun continues with Festival Week (March 4-11) – eight days of learning, hands-on activities, innovation, and behind-the-scenes opportunities for students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as adults and families to ignite their passion for STEM education.

Many events are free and open to the public. More than 65,000 are expected to participate throughout the week visiting Expo Day and festival week events.

A program of the Biocom Institute and presented by Illumina Foundation, the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering aims to encourage and engage kids in STEM, and to increase San Diego County’s reputation of being a leader in the science industry.

By hosting events and activities throughout the region, the festival demonstrates how science and engineering opportunities are in our own “backyard,” and are for science lovers of all ages.
