The Atlanta Science Festival, a two-week celebration of science and technology, will begin this Friday.
From March 9-24, the festival will put on more than 100 events at locations throughout Metro Atlanta designed for everyone – kids, families, teens and even adults.
“Science touches us all,” Meisa Salaita, executive co-director of the Atlanta Science Festival, said. “So we take a something-for-everybody approach to our programming, and inject a blast of fun into an array of engaging and educational events.”
According to the festival’s website, scientists and educators from local museums, universities, schools and companies all come together to produce the events. Presented by Delta Airlines, the festival offers events based around STEAM —an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
The events vary in cost from free to a nominal fee, but there are dozens available. The festival’s finale, a day-long interactive expo, will take place March 24 at Piedmont Park. For a full schedule, visit the Atlanta Science Festival website.
