STEM In Your Backyard

FREE STEM FAIRS (smaller versions of Expo Day)

In diverse communities across San Diego inspiring science for all!

San Diego is made up of a collective of very diverse communities which drive the spirit of the city. STEM In Your Backyard, has a vision to unite all these communities over the course of the next five years through sparks of science. Each program this year will feature a mini version of EXPO day brought into the community on either a weekend afternoon or afterschool timeframe allowing for students, families and business leaders within each community to interact and engage in learning together.
Our hope with this program as we grow is for each unique “pocket” of San Diego to rise up and take ownership over its own event, where the whole truly becomes greater than the sum of its parts and the Festival will act as the conduit which bonds these parts.
Nonprofit and educational institutions who are interested in exhibiting please fill out the brief application and someone from our team will contact you with more information.
