JACKSONVILLE, FL — January 8th, 2023 - River City Science Academy (RCSA) is excited to announce the upcoming Annual STEM and Health Expo, scheduled for February 3, 2024, at their Innovation campus located at 8160 Baymeadows Way W.

This year's Florida STEM & Health Expo by River City Science Academy promises an exceptional experience, redefining the traditional county science and health fair exposition in Florida.

This cost-free, one-day event will feature captivating science demonstrations, STEM educators, scientists, interactive experiences, intriguing robotics, community health advocates, medical experts, dedicated community members, fire and police departments, engaging vendor booths, public servants, and much more.
