Tirelessly Volunteering to Create a Family Friendly STEAM Event

Over the last 10+ years a group of volunteers have donated their time over months to prepare for the St. Pete Science Festival.  These volunteers are passionate about science and technology.   They hope that their efforts will create an event to inspire a future generation of St. Petersburg residents to love science and consider STEAM careers.  Kudos to the Science Festival Steering Committee members!  They are in the midst of planning the February 2023 event and are working hard to make it successful.
