Date:5/17/2013

Atlanta residents of all ages will celebrate the science and technology of the region and its impact on our daily lives during the inaugural Atlanta Science Festival, March 22-29, 2014. With scientists, engineers and educators from local museums, corporations, K-12 schools and universities, the festival will host more than 40 different events for children and adults at venues across the city.

The annual Atlanta Science Festival is a collaboration of scientific, educational, corporate, civic, cultural and community organizations led by founding partners Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, The Atlanta Science Tavern and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

"Whether you're a self-proclaimed science-lover or simply fascinated by the how the world works, we invite you to share in this celebration of 'the curious' in all of us," says Jordan Rose, the festival's managing director and associate director at the Emory College Center for Science Education. "There's something for everyone: comedy, art, poetry, food, lasers, stars, gardens, dinosaurs and more."

Participants will explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on activities, facility tours, stimulating presentations and riveting performances. The festival week culminates with an Exploration Expo at Centennial Olympic Park on March 29, 2014, where more than 20,000 attendees are expected to enjoy interactive activities, workshops and performances.
