SDCCU is proud to sponsor the 2016 San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering, a ten-day educational experience to engage kids and families in all that encompasses STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
The festival kicks off with EXPO Day on March 5 at Petco Park, which is free and open to the public. Several businesses and organizations will participate in EXPO Day, providing fun, interactive activities for kids. SDCCU’s booth will feature a fun game of finance trivia for kids with an opportunity for their parents to step into the SDCCU Cash Cube, a walk-in container where money flies through the air. Lucky parents will have the opportunity to spend 30 seconds and grab up to $500.
“SDCCU is proud to support STEM education. Science, technology, engineering and innovation are a significant part of our everyday lives, which is why it’s important to teach kids the fundamentals of STEM at a young age,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “STEM also offers some of the best career options in today’s technological age, which is vital to our future, the future of youth and the future of the economy.”
The San Diego Science and Engineering Festival EXPO Day will be followed by over 60 programs and events throughout the week all throughout the County of San Diego. More than 75,000 kids, parents, teachers, industry leaders and community members are expected to participate during Festival Week. For more information, visit lovemystemsd.org.
