 2021 Virtual Festival of Science & Engineering Coming April 24 to May 2

Virtual STEAM Week April 24 to May 2 graphic for San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering

It's been a long year since the last San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering, but the event is back for 2021. It's going to look a bit different since it won't be in-person like pre-pandemic, but that's not going to stop the team from creating special #STEAM moments and memories for the whole family.

The new virtual format brings the festival back to an even larger audience. Programming will be free and accessible from any device with an Internet connection, so please share the event far and wide to anyone you think might be interested.

Confirmed event highlights include:

Live Main Stage — April 27 and 28

On Tuesday and Wednesday of Festival Week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the festival will have a series of events live streaming on the main stage that you can access throughout the day.
