March 21 - 28, 2015

The Atlanta Science Festival is a week-long celebration of local science and technology, held March 21-28, 2015. Curious people of all ages will explore the science and technology in our region and see how science is connected to all parts of our lives in a variety of hands-on activities, facility tours, presentations, and performances throughout the metro Atlanta region. The Festival culminates in the free, family-friendly EXPLORATION EXPO - an interactive day of demos, hands-on activities, and stage shows at Centennial Olympic Park.

Highlights

Come join the CDC Office of Women’s Health and the Emory University chapter of the Association of Women in Science and learn about Disease Detectives and what it’s like to prevent diseases, and investigate and stop outbreaks. Women scientists who have worked on the Ebola outbreak and other public health threats to our health and safety will discuss their experiences. Bring your tablet or iPad to help Solve the Outbreak!
In this workshop for parents and educators, come learn to build a culture that fosters play through the use of tools that making and tinkering provide for our youngest makers. Learn to explore and embrace play in a way that encourages character development and social advocacy in children. You will learn to create an environment for children where they learn to take risks and fail gracefully, eventually finding success in ways that fire their imaginations.
The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how wrong this view is: Math touches everything we do, allowing us to see the hidden structures beneath the messy and chaotic surface of our daily lives. It’s a science of not being wrong, worked out through centuries of hard work and argument.
SCIENCE! Puppet shows, sketch comedy, music, and storytelling! Learn all about the science of bacteria, particle physics, cell biology and all things tiny at the Solve for X Science Variety Show!
Science like you’ve never seen it before! The Leucine Zipper Science show will feature a variety of science-themed acts including comedy, magic, music, and much, much, more! Come prepared to learn and be entertained!
The ultimate FREE family science event on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Centennial Olympic Park, including interactive activities and performances that celebrate the excitement of STEM in Atlanta.
