Stream Festival


Spring 2020 STREAM Festival

Saturday, April 18, 2020 from 1:00-4:00 PM

STREAM Festival is an annual event hosted by the Service Learning & Volunteer Center, although this is the fourth annual STREAM Festival, it originally started in 2005 as the Math and Science Fair. After ten years, we switched the name to The STREAM Festival because every great scientist must have a passion for Reading and Writing, and we included Arts because science is full of creativity and artistic talent. STREAM stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Englineering, Arts, and Math. We welcome all disciplines to participate, but ask that all projects be flavored with STEM.

The event is set-up like festival filled with 75-100 outdoor booths and labs with hands-on STEM focused projects. The festival promotes a passion for learning across the disciplines, with a STEM foundation. Last semester we had 100 booths, 45 courses represented, 10 community partners, 400 student and staff presenters, and 40 volunteers! A few of the courses and clubs that are represented each year are: Math, Architecture and Design, Biology, Anthropology, English, Chemistry, Horticulture, IT Club, Psychology, Oceanography, Nutrition, Music, GSA, BSU, Umoja, Equity, Photography, Arts, Sociology, Child Development, Medical Billing, Associated Student Government, ICC, Math Club, Outreach, and our very own Technical Career Institute.

MiraCosta invites the local preschools, elementary schools, middle schools and their families, after school programs and local non-profit organizations that serve this age group. This is a yearly free outreach event that promotes college and STEM. Last year 2,000 community kids/parents attended the STREAM Festival.
