 High Tech Fair Hosts Student and Parent Night February 12 at Del Mar Fairgrounds

​The San Diego Science Alliance High Tech Fair for grades 6-12 kicks off Tues, Feb. 12 with Student/Parent Night from 5-8 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, Wyland Hall. Students and their parents are invited to explore the latest applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as they meet representatives from local high tech industries. Admission and parking is free but registration is required.

This year’s Fair offers hands-on demonstrations in the fields of: Aerospace, Biotech, BioMedical, Clean Energy, Conservation, Engineering, Environmental Science, Healthcare Technology, Information and Communication Technology, and Robotics.

“The High Tech Fair fires up students’ imagination and enthusiasm by asking probing questions such as how are medicines created, can we make energy from mud, or how do you make a plane stop,” said Nancy Taylor, executive director of the San Diego Science Alliance.

This year the Fair will feature nearly 50 exhibitors from local, cutting-edge STEM organizations and expects to attract 3000 students, teachers and parents over two days.

For the past 15 years, the High Tech Fair has been organized by the San Diego Science Alliance (SDSA), the San Diego County Office of Education and San Diego Unified School District. SDSA is a catalyst for improving K-12 science education in San Diego County. This non-profit event is made possible through the support of corporate sponsors, community partners and exhibitors.
