St. Petersburg Science Festival 2014

St. Petersburg Science Festival

The 4th Annual St. Petersburg Science Festival will be held during the week of October 14-18, 2014. The public expo on Saturday, October 18, is a free, public celebration of science featuring a wide range of engaging, interactive science, technology, engineering, and math-related (STEM) activities. The USGS Coastal and Marine Science Center plays integral role as a collaborator and exhibitor for this event, which will be held along the waterfront campus of University of South Florida (USF) St. Petersburg and Poynter Park.

The free festival is held in conjunction with MarineQuest, the annual open house for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. USF St. Petersburg officials estimated last year's attendance at 25,000—and festival organizers expect an even bigger turnout this year, with more events and excitement in the works!

Our contribution to the St. Petersburg Science Festival builds on a strong USGS commitment to sharing science with the community that began at the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center more than 10 years ago with the first annual open house held in 1999.
