This year plan to come visit the Florida Institute of Oceanography (FIO) at the St. Petersburg Science Festival usually in conjunction with the MarineQuest Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute open house. Find event details at the St. Petersburg Science Festival & MarineQuest websites.
FIO supports cultivating future oceanographers as well as the skills included in STEM/STEAM learning. FIO participates and shares knowledge and information about our research vehicles, technologies and the importance of FIO during the St. Petersburg Science Festival where the public is invited to participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering and art and math (STEAM). Watch this short St. Petersburg Science Fest (YouTube) news video at USFSP by WTSP to see what this year's Science Fest/MarineQuest might include.
