About this event

Magnolia Science Academy San Diego is a STEAM focused public charter middle school.  We have been serving our San Diego communities since 2005, celebrating our 15th year this year!  We constantly strive to provide opportunities for our students to participate and compete in local, state and national athletic and academic competitions.  These opportunities allow them to explore possible career choices, develop presentation and public speaking skills and give back to the community.  
We are able to provide these opportunities free of charge to all of our students through our after school club and tutoring program thanks to our awesome team of teachers and administration.  Our students' participation in these programs and competitions has yielded positive results with our teams achieving Southern California championships in Archery, First Lego League, Future City, Middle School Band, and SeaPerch.  Our Future City and Sea Perch teams each went on to compete nationally. 

At Magnolia Science Academy San Diego, we feel a responsibility to be out in our community creating excitement for STEAM education and giving community members the opportunity to experience STEAM through hands-on, interactive activities.  To this end we have partnered with Grossmont Center and hosted a Holiday STEAM Expo (which has now become an annual event) and Summer STEAM Expo.  Additionally, we have participated in Barnes and Noble's STEAM Saturday event, Dailard Elementary's Fall Festival and Foster Elementary's Pumpkin Palooza.  We have also built a partnership with House of Mexico and have been able to share their culture and rich heritage through As a Magnolia family, we also take advantage of the opportunities coming from different resources- non-profits, businesses, local colleges and educational institutions and strive to be the true community school. 

The 7th Annual San Diego STEAM Expo co-hosted by Magnolia Science Academy & Grossmont College on the college’s campus will feature hands-on, interactive demonstrations and activities for guests of all ages.  Magnolia Science Academy is a STEAM focused public middle school serving San Diego communities since 2005. The STEAM Expo celebrates our students and their achievements in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.  It will also feature activities from local STEAM oriented businesses and organizations from throughout San Diego.  We have been joined in the past by NIWC (formerly SPAWAR) with their virtual reality booth, Mathnasium, Sally Ride Science, Patrick Henry High School Robotics, Grossmont College Science Club, House of Mexico with Mexican folklore dancing.
