Educator Toolkit – Atlanta Science Festival

Educator Toolkit

The Atlanta Science Festival is back March 13-27, 2021 with 90+ virtual, self-guided, and outdoor events for curious kids and adults. While the Festival is for all community members, the specific K-12 events and resources described on this page create opportunities to engage students and teachers in connecting classroom learning to enriching experiences throughout metro Atlanta. You can help most by staying informed and spreading the word to your colleagues, students, and their families.
