Educator Toolkit

The Atlanta Science Festival's K-12 events, competitions, and resources create opportunities to engage students and teachers in celebrating local science and technology. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed. Then help your school, after-school program, PTA group, youth group, etc. learn more about the Atlanta Science Festival by sharing our flyer (below) or this link to our K-12 eblast:




Our online listing of 100 events
can be filtered by audience.
For example, the Zombie Outbreak Game event
is a fun way to learn about infectious disease!
And you can type "field trip"
into the search box to pull some great
field trip opportunities.



Really, the whole Festival is an
opportunity for professional learning,
but here are some workshops
designed specifically for educators, including:
Genes in Space, NASA's Solar Eclipse 2017,
and STEM Leadership Institute.
