What to Expect at X-STEM

X-STEM San Diego is a FREE in-person CONFERENCE-STYLE event for middle and high school students designed to empower and inspire kids about careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  Attendees will be inspired by presentations from leading STEM role models, participate in Q&A sessions, learn by doing in hands-on workshops, interact with students from all over the county, and have fun while learning about exciting career opportunities in STEM!

X-STEM San Diego is presented by the U.S. Space Force.  Workshops are sponsored by General Atomics Sciences Education Foundation and the U.S. Air Force.

Registered attendees and school groups attending for the full day* will be assigned to:
– ONE session participating in a hands-on workshop**
– TWO sessions seated in the main stage area to view speaker presentations and participate in Q&A sessions (each session will feature up to 2 speakers)

*We understand that sometimes schools need to leave the event early. Due to limited seating, we will try our best but cannot guarantee early departing schools seats in a hands-on workshop.
**Due to limited seating, we are unable to take requests for specific speakers or workshops.

What People Are Saying

Last year, nearly 2000 students, teachers, and parents from Oceanside to San Ysidro attended X-STEM San Diego.  Check out the 2022 recap report and photo album to see what X-STEM San Diego is all about.

The X-STEM Conference gave my students a chance to experience different techniques in Science and Engineering that they might not normally have had the chance to do.  It was a great experience for my high school freshmen.  They walked away with so many new ideas!

I really enjoyed learning more about STEM. I never actually knew about what it was and what people in that field do, getting insight really helped me understand… it was an unforgettable experience. I definitely plan on going again if I have the opportunity to.
Student from King Chavez Community High School, 2022 X-STEM San Diego Attendee

I took my 15 year old daughter to this conference. She loves math but doesn’t know what career she wants to do with it. She loved all of the presenters and the practical things that they shared. She got to talk to people that were interested in math and they gave her ideas of how to pursue math in the future. Also, the content connected well with the topics that she has been learning about in high school.
