Attention science geeks: From March 9-24, 2018, the Atlanta Science Festival, a celebration of science and technology, will take place at various locations around metro-Atlanta.
With 100 events, there’ll be plenty to see do. You can go on a Fernbank Forest Bird Walk, join GSU Geosciences on a Rock n’ Walk on Stone Mountain, learn about ice cream science, check out robotics demonstrations, and more. (Browse the complete list of events; fees may apply for some events.)
If you only have time for one event during the Atlanta Science Festival, go to the Exploration Expo, which will take place at Piedmont Park on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
From 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., you can check out carbon dioxide bubble bombs, introduce your little ones to STEAM & STEM activities in the Curious Kids Zone, explore the microscopic world, pedal a human-powered generator & form a human circuit, and more. There are 100+ interactive exhibits in the Expo zones–Discover, Invent, Encounter, Thrive, Power Up, STEAM, and Curious Kids. It’s free to attend the Exploration Expo.
Be sure to head out early for The Ping-Pong Big Bang. At noon, thousands of pink ping pong balls will launch into the skies around Piedmont Park.
Piedmont Park is located near the intersection of 10th Street and Charles Allen Drive in Atlanta.
