Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D.) is a family themed festival celebrating science, technology, engineering and math.

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 34th 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.

The 34th 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 (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) festival will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019 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.

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.
