Fun and Science Collide: The Tech Interactive Announces Summer Event Line-Up

Summer Spectacular Brings Carnival of Kittens, Dominos, IMAX Films, and STEAM Activities

June 13, 2024, San Jose, CA — The Tech Interactive, a world-renowned science, technology, and education center in the heart of Silicon Valley, invites visitors of all ages to step right up for the Summer Spectacular in downtown San Jose. With hands-on STEAM activities, entertaining workshops, blockbuster films, and carnival-themed events, there will be something for everyone at The Tech Interactive all summer long. This year’s theme is a nod to The Santa Clara County Fair’s remarkable 80th Anniversary.

As visitors navigate The Tech Interactive’s 130,000 square feet of exhibit space, they will play, tinker, investigate, and create while engaging with an exciting new series of carnival-themed challenges and activities. Featured summer workshops such as Domino Distraction, Bridgetopia Sponsored by Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, and Tightrope Walkers offer unique opportunities to learn about engineering, physics, and more. Visit "Today at The Tech" for specific locations and times.

“There's something for everyone at our Summer Spectacular, where the AC is blasting, the ICEES are flowing, and the fun never ends!” Said Doris Bell, Vice President of Operations at The Tech Interactive. “We're putting a science spin on carnival classics to make learning entertaining and exciting for kids ages 3 to 99!”
