By Kristin Luciani

The San Diego Science Festival, the largest celebration of science on the West Coast, returns this March with content-rich, interactive learning experiences for kids of all ages.

Bringing together hundreds of innovative local organizations and individuals, the San Diego Science Festival demonstrates that careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are accessible and exciting pathways to a better future. This festival starts on March 19 and culminates with EXPO DAY at PETCO Park on March 26.

The Festival is organized by UCSD and receives lead support from Life Technologies, the National Science Foundation, many local corporate sponsors and a wide array of K–12 and higher education institutions. Additionally, UCSD collaborates with more than 150 leading organizations and community members who offer their financial support and time. Educational support is provided by ScienceBridge, UCSD science education outreach program.

More than 75,000 kids, parents, scientists, educators and community members are expected to participate in Festival events throughout the county. The finale, EXPO DAY, draws more than 30,000 for an all-day interactive exploration of science, engineering and technology at PETCO Park. For more details and a complete listing of events visit
