Liisa Bozinovic is not a baseball coach, but she sounded like a Major League scout when she was outside of Petco Park.
"Obviously, San Diego is a hotbed of STEM racing, and we need to awaken that early excitement in children," said Bozinovic, executive director of the Biocom Institute .
Expo Day for the tenth anniversary San Diego Science and Engineering Festival – lasts until March 11 – includes a pre-kindergarten zone.
"We took on a large area of Park at the Park and really excited the little ones," he said.
Practical exhibitions and attractive exhibitions in science, technology, engineering and mathematics extended to adulthood. (In fact, an event "Think, Drink, Science" is set on Wednesday in Cutwater Spirits.)
Directed by the sponsor Illumina Foundation with genomic exposures, free exposure presented more than 130 exhibitions of corporate, non-profit and school groups.
The morning rain stopped just as the event began at 10 a.m. m, enabling an expected attendance of 26,000.
"The sun went down, that's fine," said Bozinovic.
Among the new attractions was the Rapid Strike flight simulator from the Air Force (the whole contraption moved, like a Disneyland ride).
The science behind healthy food and food took up space in the Sun Deck beyond the central field fence, and several stages featured concerts and other entertainment.
Called one of the largest one-day science exhibitions in the country, the event at the center gives way to others throughout the county, from Barrio Logan to San Marcos.
