Stem In Your Backyard (SIYB) is a new signature event being held in partnership with the Biocom Institute in support of the 10th Anniversary of the Live Well San Diego vision. SIYB supports the Thriving component of the vision by providing access to free, meaningful STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experiences by bringing the spark of science directly to communities throughout San Diego County.
SIYB events are a part of the larger San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering and are being held during STEM Week March 9-13th. These events aim to increase opportunities for students to interact with STEM professionals and provide youth with positive and diverse STEM role models. This STEM exposure encourages youth to stay involved in STEM and consider a career in this field.
