Science Discovery Day

Wednesday February 28, 2018

8:00-11:30 am


Science Discovery Day wants you!

Help us bring this passion to our kids at TPES and be part of the most popular school-wide educational event in La Jolla. For over 20 years Science Discovery Day has inspired budding scientists with hands-on, age-appropriate science and technology activities. 

To continue this tradition, we want to make this Science Discovery Day the most exciting event yet. To make that happen, we need you. Each student gets to experience three 30-minute different science activities from three different presenters.  We need lots of presenters-which means we need YOUR help to make this amazing morning a reality!

Please volunteer to be a presenter or just help out

Do you want to present but you need help coming up with a presentation? Sign up, and we will help you with ideas and plans!

To join us for a morning of fun and learning, please go online and complete the form at HERE! Alternatively, you can fill out a paper form and return it to the Torrey Pines Elementary School office, or email it to us at   

For more information or to discuss ideas for your presentation, please contact us at
