Planning is underway for the 3rd Annual St. Petersburg Science Festival, a regional celebration where families and the public can explore the wonders of hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). LI4E.org is one of many great collaborative partners of the 2013 festival that will be held on October 18-19, 2013, along the waterfront campus of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. The event is held in conjunction with MarineQuest, the annual open house of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute.

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, arts and math) learning.
