The San Diego Science Festival is back! Widely known as the largest celebration of science on the West Coast, on March 19-26 the Festival is hosting dozens of countywide events promising to “excite the minds” of hundreds of thousands of students and their families.

The 2011 SDSF will feature events such as Family Day at Balboa Park, special events at the Birch Aquarium and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, Science of Beer, an event by the Science Entertainment Exchange, and Science Sampler at SDSU. The festival will culminate with EXPO Day, the Festival’s largest event––a FREE all-day celebration of science––on Saturday, March 26 at PETCO Park, co-hosted by the Padres and the City of San Diego.  Expo Day will include over 150 hands-on activities and exciting stage shows and is guaranteed to entertain and educate everyone aged 3 to 93!

The San Diego Science Festival is organized by the UC San Diego, with the support of hundreds of community collaborators, to educate students across the region and inform the public about how important scientific discoveries influence the quality of their daily lives.  Visit http://www.sdsciencefestival.com/ for complete details including a calendar of events.

I don’t know about you…but this sounds like SO MUCH FUN!  I was looking through the daily schedules and there are different activities in different places around town throughout the week.  Anthony really want’s to go looking for bugs in the San Diego River bed on Sunday (lucky me).  And it’s FREE.  This is a great week for homeschoolers, so many outings that are fun and educational.  I’m super excited.
