STEAM Education and Outreach

Connecting students with Science, Tech, Engineering, Art and Math opportunities

San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering

The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering, completely virtual for 2021, is driven by three main objectives:

  1. Cultivate diverse pipelines for all youth to understand and be encouraged in STEAM disciplines through impactful education programs, outreach, and experiential learning opportunities.
  2. Increase the opportunities to interact with STEM professionals and provide youth with positive and diverse STEAM role models.
  3. Connect California’s thriving STEAM industries to the greater community and encourage community members to stay involved in STEAM and pursue STEAM careers.

The San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering is the largest STEAM Festival in Southern California. A ten-day educational experience including interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities and dynamic speakers, the Festival’s “STEAM Week” impacts more than 65,000 community members annually.


STEAM Distance-Learning

With an extensive network of industry partners and community resource organizations, the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering is committed to supporting our K-12 teachers and students year-round, including through remote-learning. It is critical to expose students to possible careers in STEAM industries, including the life sciences, so they can aspire to jobs that they may not have otherwise known existed. In today’s distance-learning reality, those opportunities are scarce, and the chances for interactive classroom visits are even more uncommon. The Biocom community is committed to supporting students of all socio-economic backgrounds in our region and their teachers to continue to provide impactful educational experiences.

We invite all STEAM professionals in our region to join our #STEAMTEAM today!
