Outreach Events

Get involved in our community activities!


Comienza con un Sueño

Spring 2022

Comienza con un Sueño, “It Begins with a Dream” is a STEM fair hosted by UCSD each year. It is a bilingual event and an opportunity for middle and high school students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to learn about STEM and higher education. For this event, we set up a few demonstrations where students can see, touch, and smell the chemistry happening around them!


Chem Expo

Fall 2022

The ChemExpo is a National Chemistry Week event hosted by ACS in San Diego to illustrate how chemistry is present in our everyday lives. Here, we set up a “make-a-cloud-in-a-bottle table” for high school and middle school students that introduced them to aerosols and cloud formation. Students enjoyed making a cloud in a bottle!

San Diego Regional Science Olympiad

Winter 2023

SWIGS is excited to participate in the local Science Olympiad! Science Olympiad (SO) is a nationwide competition for middle and high school students. Students will compete in events that include earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Science Olympiad is designed to increase students' interest in STEM fields and provide recognition for outstanding achievement in team events. ! (March 4, 2023)


Expanding Your Horizons

The Expanding Your Horizons Conference is an all-day annual STEM conference for girls in grades 6-10. Its goal is to increase the girls’ interest in STEM careers by providing exciting and engaging hands-on experiences. EYH is typically SWIGS’s largest outreach event, and we are always looking for volunteers! We host two separate workshops: Molecular Gastronomy and Chemistry Magic Show. (March 18, 2023)
