Our mission is to show that learning science can be fun, to showcase the wonders of science, relate how science fits into the larger context of modern everyday life, and to connect the public with scientists for a direct translation.

Why a Science Festival?

Science is vital for even the most basic aspects of modern society. Every day, each one of us benefits from scientific knowledge through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. Science and technology power our world, protect us from natural disasters, improve our health, and entertain us.

The inspiring science happening throughout our region has been and will continue to be the star, front and center, of this vibrant celebration of hands-on activities for children and adults with emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) learning.

Festival Goals

In it's 10th year, the St. Petersburg Science Festival has grown in leaps and bounds.  Since its 2011 debut, more than 15,000 visitors participate in our festival each year. Our festival goals are:

  • Create a positive experience with STEAM-related activities that will inspire festival visitors to seek out involvement in other STEAM-related activities throughout the year.
  • Increase the participation in STEAM-activities of children from underrepresented communities.
  • Provide opportunities for research and science professionals to engage in conversation with the public regarding STEAM research endeavors and diverse career opportunities.
