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.
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.
