Let's All Go Mad for Science! #ILoveSTEMSD

It's that time of year again! The San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering is just around the corner! The event aims to encourage and get kids excited about science and related fields to inspire them to become tomorrow’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) innovators.

My kids love science and technology so I get really excited each year to take them!

Here are a few pictures from our past visits over the years:

Here are my kids on CW6 News promoting a few of the fun activities at the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering:

Festival Week consists of six days of learning, interaction and behind-the-scenes opportunities for kids in grades kindergarten through 12th grade and their families to ignite the love for all things science.

Festival Week culminates with EXPO Day, with more than 130 local businesses, corporations, and organizations providing interactive, hands-on science, technology, engineering and math exhibits and activities to budding K-12 science lovers, but everyone is welcome. EXPO Day is free and open to the public.

We are definitely looking forward to SDSU Science and Engineering Sampler where my boys will be able to make waves, solve mysteries, see the stars, see big bugs and watch high-tech lasers! We also can't wait to see the ROBOTS! SCIENCE! EXPLOSIONS! exhibit which will be a hands-on science, technology, engineering and math activity for K-12 science lovers!

AT&T’s It Can Wait texting and driving simulator will also be making a stop at the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering on Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. AT&T will be showcasing its simulator and educating the public—especially teens and kids—on the risks involved with texting behind the wheel. Texting while driving was estimated to be involved in 200,000+ vehicle crashes in 2012, often involving injuries and deaths. The “It Can Wait” message is simple and powerful: No text is worth dying for.

We hope to bump into you at the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering during the week of March 14 to 21!
