Science festivals are large, inspiring celebrations of the fascinating world of science and technology. Science festivals establish science as a part of the local culture, attracting the attention and potential participation of everyone living and working in a community.

What is Jacksonville Science Festival (JSF)?

Jacksonville Science Festival was established in 2013 to inspire K-12 graders and to promote equity for all learners, traditional and non-traditional, with an intense focus on those without continual opportunity or exposure in the fields of STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.

Following a project-based educational model, questions lead to student led projects with teacher and counselor mentorship and local community expert collaboration.

Equity and justice to JSF means bringing to the same table gifted, challenged, and differently-abled learners and providing an environment for them to equally shine and equally discover how STEAM careers ARE within their reach.
