2021 STEAM Week Welcome Center

Virtual Festival Week Available Through December 31, 2021

Welcome to the 13th Annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering... gone virtual! We’re so happy you’re here.

Since we couldn’t meet in person at Petco Park in San Diego this year, we’re bringing the ballpark to you as the theme for the different event spaces.

Scroll through the Welcome Center to experience STEAM Week events and activities or navigate through the slide-out sidebar at the top right of the page. Keep an eye on the daily schedule and be sure to snap a pic in our virtual photo booth to share on social.

Have fun!
