A new Jacksonville Science Festival initiative, “Science Day” or “Just Add Science”, is now open to cultural, civic, public, and private events in Jacksonville and surrounding areas. Its purpose is to “Just Add Science” to any event in order to increase STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) exposure.

 STEM has direct and indirect relevance to many activities that people enjoy. Activities such as football and other sports, theater, music, car racing and more are connected with STEM. “Science Day” and “Just Add Science” are a great way to showcase the importance of STEM and an opportunity to help our young people get engaged with STEM and feel that career choices in STEM areas are not out of reach or irrelevant to things they are interested in.
