City of STEM, Greater LA’s biggest science program, officially kicks off with a virtual, all-
online event Saturday, October 10. Over 18 hours of STEM content - that’s Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math - from science rock bands to special guest engineers,
will be streaming from 10am – 4pm. Over 130 STEM partners from around Southern
California, including major museums, universities and STEM businesses, have come
together to provide exciting live and recorded STEM content, such as spectacular
demonstrations, compelling updates from real scientists and engineers, and special
guests, including Jason Latimer, the talent behind the recently released YouTube series
“Impossible Science. “ More will be announced as the date gets closer to the main event
on October 10.
Dozens of City of STEM partners have jumped into action to still provide exciting STEM
experiences to kids and adults in Southern California despite the challenges of COVID-19
restrictions. City of STEM, LA’s largest science program, usually runs the entire month of
April with over 150 events occurring across Greater LA. Due to the pandemic, the live
events, which usually see tens of thousands of attendees, had to be postponed. Now
they are going online! If you’re a fan of STEM, this is the ultimate event for you. Get
updates on the new space race, with real rocket scientists and NASA engineers! Learn
