“Super STEM Saturday’s purpose is to develop in everyone who attends an appreciation and understanding of the role science and engineering plays in our daily lives and how its practical applications solve critical problems and real-world issues.” said CSUSM Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics Katherine Kantardjieff.
“What we take away from our childhood is really meaningful to what we decide to do as adults,” said Simon Kuo, Vice President of Quality Management at ViaSat. “That’s why we believe it’s really important to expose kids to science and technology so that it can help them better appreciate it and perhaps even choose a career in STEM.”
“Jean-Jacques Rousseau once shared, ‘We should not teach children the sciences; but give them a taste for them,” said Cameron Curry, Chief Executive Officer for The Classical Academies. “I am so pleased that we provide the community of North County with a festival focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The culmination of educators, organizations and professionals working together allow us to inspire minds, ignite passions and expose students and our community to what is possible with STEM.”

Other community sponsors making this event possible include: Cox Communications, Genentech, Leavitt Financial Services, Tri-City Medical Center, Calsense, Eset, General Atomics, Kaiser Permanente, Nordson, Thermofisher, Young, Minney, and Corr, Sony, Baker Electric Solar and Baker Home Energy, Aetna, Hewitt Packard, Legoland, Masson & Associates, Medtronic, Pacific Western Bank, and RBC Capital
