Balboa Park To Host Art, Science Festival

A celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, or STEAM., is on tap this Sunday in Balboa Park.

Organizers expect more than 10,000 people at Balboa Park’s seventh annual STEAM Day.

Free STEAM-themed crafts will line the park’s Prado. And the museums will admit kids under 12 for no charge if they are with a paid adult.

Ashanti Davis from the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center said people forget that science can be stranger than art.

“These things are weird, there are parts of them that are involved in everything that we do and there are parts that are very strange and bizarre,” Davis said. “And we want to know more because we want to know where its going and where its going to take us next.”

Angela Bacon from the San Diego Model Railroad Museum said they hope the event brings joy to science education.

“Because a lot of time when kids think about science and math all they think about is statistics and numbers and it might drag them down a little,” Bacon said. “And this is a fun way to engage people and to learn that science and math can be fun.“

To see the complete list of all that’s going on for everyone at STEAM Day, go to balboapark.org/STEAMday.
