Bring the whole family out for the biggest interactive science event Atlanta has ever seen!
Atlanta Science Festival's EXPLORATION EXPO
Saturday, March 28, 2015, 11-4pm at Centennial Olympic Park
Rain or shine or even really cold (wear layers!).
This FREE event is open to adults, families, and children all ages and interests. It will promote science exploration, discovery and innovation with more than 100 interactive exhibits, hands-on experiments, mind blowing demos and a full line-up of science-themed performances! See our schedule of events and list of exhibitors.
Among the new features added to enhance the Expo experience for this year:
- Plan your day more easily with five new zones for exhibits: Discover, Invent, Encounter, Thrive and Play.
- Get a keep-sake caricature drawn of yourself as a scientist, or come home with a 3D model of your head.
- Meet professional cheerleaders studying or working in STEM fields as they promote citizen science projects throughout the day.
- Visit the Kids Science Pavilion for fun science projects that children and their families can do at home.
As with last year's Expo, schools will also get a chance to win $400 to enhance science education for their classrooms. During the Expo, students can check-in at the Welcome Tent and fill out a card to register their class to win. The more students from your class who enter, the better chance you have to win - so bring your classmates! Ten schools, selected at random, will win.
SPREAD THE WORD: Download the flyer and share!
