Science in the Sun - See you in 2013!
Thanks to all who participated and attended! You helped us more than double the turnout we had in 2011! Let's top that in 2013!
For the second year in a row, the St. Petersburg Science Festival celebrated the wonders of hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). In conjunction with MarineQuest, the annual open house of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, the lively and well-attended festival took place October 27, 2012 at the Bayboro Waterfront of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. With more than 100 exhibits and activities, 12,000 attendees, and the inclusion of popular food trucks, the festival built substantially upon the success of 2011's inaugural Science Festival.
Why a science festival?
Science is vital for even the most basic aspects of modern society. Every day, each one of us benefits from scientific knowledge whether through the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. Science and technology power our world, protect us from natural disasters, improve our health and entertain us.
Science in St. Petersburg has been and will for years to come be the star, front and center, of this vibrant celebration of hands-on activities for children and adults with emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning.
