STEM in San Diego: Resources & Needs

The purpose of this convening will be to collectively explore the current state of STEM in the region, identify STEM resources/partners and discuss STEM needs in the greater San Diego area. We hope that by bringing important stakeholders together we can host a cohesive conversation about the importance of approaching STEM in San Diego through a multifaceted lens. STEM is much more than education, it is the fastest growing workforce sector, a booming industry in San Diego and provides ample opportunity for upward mobility - especially among for those from underrepresented backgrounds.

Super STEM Saturday @ Home

Join thousands of North County families for a one-day virtual festival filled with hands-on DIY experiments, live demonstrations, and exciting day-of challenges (complete with cool prizes) that will ignite your curiosity and deepen your love for STEM – all from the comfort of your home.

Barrio Logan Science & Art Expo

This is NOT your average science event! The Barrio Logan Science & Art Expo is an inclusive annual event that brings together science, art, and culture. Join the Barrio Logan Association, UC San Diego, and various community partners as we highlight science, art and culture in the world around us and celebrate it through a relevant and cultural lens. Some demonstrations include the science behind lowriders, bikes, skateboards, tortillas, brewing, music and more! For questions, volunteer info or to host a booth, please contact us using the RSVP page.


Viasat celebrates International Women’s Day! 

We’ll be putting the “A” in STEAM by creating a women in STEAM mural with EXPO attendees. Participants who visit the Viasat booth will use their handprints to help create a mural which recognizes the past, present and future of women in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics).
