About This Event
This festival celebrates local science and technology every March, featuring more than 100 events throughout metro Atlanta and reaching 50,000 children and adults annually. Festival events feature hands-on activities, tours, tastings, and performances from more than 100 community partners, including school districts, post-secondary institutions, museums, businesses, civic and community groups. The Festival ends with the explosive Exploration Expo, Atlanta’s biggest interactive family science event, with hundreds of hands-on activities in a free carnival of science! Our evaluation data show that the racial/ethnic diversity among Festival attendees closely matches that of the metro Atlanta region and that our Festival is reaching a wide variety of ages. Atlanta’s biggest interactive science event is FREE and open to adults, families, and children of all ages and interests. With more than 100 hands-on, interactive science booths from local organizations, universities, and companies, we’ll be showing off Atlanta science at this year’s Exploration Expo.
