On Saturday, March 2, Mesa College will host multiple interactive booths on EXPO Day at Petco Park, via the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering. EXPO Day, now in its 11th year, is a FREE day-long celebration of STEM in San Diego, where non-profits, educational
institutions and corporations hold exhibits and provide activities for children K-12.
The Science Festival’s mission is to engage and encourage kids in science and engineering
and work with parents and teachers to inspire today’s students to become tomorrow’s
science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) innovators.
“Mesa College – via our STEM Conexiones Program - is a proud Sponsor of EXPO Day,” stated Dr. Leticia P. López, Hispanic Serving Institution and STEM Grants Program
Manager. “Highlighting our programs helps us build community by deepening our outreach
efforts and connecting with underrepresented students in STEM, women, low-income,
and historically underrepresented students.”
Mesa College will host three booths on Expo Day - STEM Conexiones, Fashion in STEM, and Psychology/PsiBeta – with faculty, staff and students at each booth offering interactive, hands-on science
and technology activities for budding K-12 science lovers.
The Biocom Institute Festival of Science and Engineering is a ten-day educational
experience including interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities and dynamic speakers
to engage kids and families in all that encompasses STEM (science, technology, engineering
and math). The week kicks off with its largest event EXPO Day, on March 2, 2019, at
PETCO Park. EXPO Day is free and open to the public. Hundreds of community businesses and organizations will participate in EXPO Day in
addition to over 60 programs and events that will follow throughout the week all throughout
the county of San Diego. More than 75,000 kids, parents, teachers, industry leaders
and community members are anticipated to attend during Festival Week. Over 65,000
kids, parents, scientists, educators and community members participate throughout
the weeklong San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering countywide events, and more
than 23,000 children, parents, and STEM enthusiasts attend EXPO Day at Petco Park.
