Thank you for your interest
in hosting an exhibit at SEED.

Science Education Enrichment Day (SEED) is the largest STEM festival in the CSRA, taking place on October 6, 2018 from 10am-3pm. The event will draw thousands of people to the USC Aiken campus in a fun filled day of interactive activities and performances that celebrate the excitement of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This FREE event is open to all, but the primary target audience will be families with children aged 8-13, with a special emphasis on those with limited access to science education resources.

We invite you to propose an exhibit booth, vehicle, or stage performance. All activities must be designed to engage the public in an interactive, hands-on way with some aspect of science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics. We encourage exhibitors to feature local STEM discoveries, the specific research and innovations coming out of local laboratories, and the science and technology behind area businesses. All content must be family-friendly, safe and appropriate.

33rd Annual S.E.E.D. – Science Education Enrichment Day
to be held on the campus of USC Aiken

Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D.) is a family themed festival celebrating science, technology, engineering and math. The 33rd annual S.E.E.D. will provide opportunity for engagement and exchange between children, teens, families, and local STEM professionals. The CSRA’s largest STEM festival will take place on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 10:00am until 3:00pm on the campus of USC Aiken and will feature exhibitors who will provide hands-on activities, interactive demonstrations, and family-oriented STEM entertainment.

Imagine making your own slime, talking turkey, driving a championship robot, becoming a TV meteorologist, or traveling through a virtual representation of outer space. These are just a few of the many activities planned for the 33rd Annual S.E.E.D. – Science Education Enrichment Day. S.E.E.D. is proud to be a Satellite Event of the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington D.C. Along with S.E.E.D., organizers of the USA Science & Engineering Festival hope to have a million people join in across the nation, and the best part—IT’S ALL FREE.

Join us on October 6th from 10am-3pm and celebrate innovations in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Visit the Ruth Patrick Science Center and other sites on the USC Aiken campus as student groups, regional corporations, museums, educators, and national labs join forces to present hundreds of activities for people of all ages.

Organizers hope to increase awareness of the critical role science and other STEM fields play in our everyday existence.
