St. Petersburg Science Festival 2017

St. Petersburg Science Festival

The St. Petersburg Science Festival was held October 21, 2017. The public expo is a free, public celebration of science featuring a wide range of engaging, interactive science, technology, engineering, and math-related (STEM) activities.

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 next 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 15 years ago with the first annual open house held in 1999.
