Engaging Young Minds in Science and Engineering

More than 55,000 kids, parents, educators, scientists and community members participated in the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering this year.  The week-long festival culminated with Expo Day at Petco Park on March 23.  Kids of all ages learned more about science and engineering by engaging in hands-on experiments and interactive demonstrations.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by the Expo Day and visited some of the UC San Diego booths.  He also spoke at the Expo Day lunch for festival partners.  The festival was created to get kids excited about STEM fields and demonstrate the importance of science and engineering in people’s lives.

UC San Diego hosted 16 booths at Expo Day. Several campus leaders, scientists and engineers also attended the Expo Day lunch including Charles Tu, Shu Chien, Sandra Brown and Pradeep K. Khosla.
