Broadening Access: The Festival is broadening access to STEM learning and careers. Our audience closely matches the racial/ethnic diversity in metro Atlanta, is 60% female, and comes from 300+ unique zip codes throughout Georgia. More than 3/4 of the events in 2017 were free. We provide bus vouchers to schools and groups serving economically disadvantaged students to attend the Festival’s Expo event. To read more about our community impact, explore our 2017 Report.
Public Engagement: Sponsors can help shape science learning throughout our community and develop our workforce in STEM-related fields by engaging with the public in a range of events, particularly by hosting an interactive booth at the Exploration Expo. The Festival provides several opportunities for employee engagement in the community. Festival staff can advise sponsors about best practices for developing engaging, hands-on programming that calls attention to the role of science and technology in your products and services.
Brand Exposure: A primary goal of Atlanta Science Festival is to showcase the many science-, technology-, engineering-, and mathematics-related contributions and learning/career opportunities already available through your organizations. With a conservative estimate of 200 million media impressions in 2017, we are well positioned to share all that your organization is doing to enhance science literacy, education, and STEM workforce development in our region.
