Annual Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D)
Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D.) is a family-themed festival celebrating science, technology, engineering, and math.
Imagine getting up close with honeybees, petting an alligator, learning how to make a rain garden, investigating a carnivorous plant, driving a championship robot, or virtually traveling through outer space. Guests will be able to do just that at SEED.
The event will celebrate innovations in the areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Student groups, regional corporations, museums, professional organizations, government agencies, educators, and national labs will join forces to create and present engaging hands-on activities for guests of all ages.
We plan this event each year to give young learners close and personal interaction with real-world scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals. The goal is to increase awareness of STEM’s role in society and that it can also be fun. As a society, we must continue to excite and engage families in STEM fields.
Highlights of the 37th Annual SEED STEM Festival include:
More than 50 hands-on exhibits and activities
Exhibits from the Aiken County EMS, American Nuclear Society, Savannah River National Lab, SCDNR, USC Aiken, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, Southern Nuclear, and more
Demonstrations of technologies and intriguing science, including robotics, nuclear power, flight, biology, chemistry, neuroscience, biodiversity, and more
Every year, this event is presented by the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center at USC Aiken, working closely with the Aiken County Public School District.
