FORT PIERCE — The Indian River Lagoon Science Festival will be returning this year, with fun-filled events showing the community the value of science and technology. It will be the 5th annual festival held at Veterans Memorial Park, 600 N. Indian River Drive, on Oct. 27.

Their mission is to promote the importance of science and technology in our lives and how interesting it can be, with resources from science-based organizations in the community. Their focus is on S.T.E.A.M, or Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

The Indian River Lagoon Science Festival is not the only event available for our community. Events with similar hands-on learning and other fun science-related opportunities are also available throughout the month. These are the Satellite Events that offer various activities in the area, such as coding activities for children, an upcoming tour of science of brewing at the Walking Tree Brewery, and more. For more information on their Satellite Events visit their website at irlsciencefest.org/events.

The Indian River Lagoon Science Festival will have exhibits from the S.T.E.A.M. community in the Treasure Coast, procession of the species, raffles, stage performances, and much more. The event gathered as many as 10,000 people for their 2017 festival. The event will aim to show how science and technology can be relevant and entertaining for both adults and children. There are still opportunities to be involved with the festival, with resources available on their website.
