USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center and Wetland and Aquatic Research Center Continue Involvement in Annual St. Petersburg Science Festival

Release Date:

Scientists from SPCMSC and WARC led children, families, and the public in hands-on activities to learn about USGS science at this year's St. Petersburg Science Festival and School Day, October 19–20.

The expo is a free, public celebration of science featuring a wide range of engaging, interactive science, technology, engineering, and math-related (STEM) activities. USGS has been a key contributor to this event, now in its eighth year. The two-day event includes a School Day Sneak Peek, which provides elementary school students from around the county the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a variety of STEAM activities, and the Festival, which is open to the public. This 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.
