March 15 - 25, 2017

  • We dropped by The Neon Company studio to chat about the science behind their colorful light displays. Good thing we brought along a chemist from Georgia Tech to shed some... er... light on what’s going on at the atomic level to make the signage and art shine.
  • We have a contest! Write your best science haiku. Submit poems here.
  • On the final day of the Festival, join 20,000 curious people for an afternoon of interactive exhibits, mind blowing demos and science-themed performances for all ages. See you at Centennial Olympic Park on March 25, 2017.
  • For now, get involved by registering to volunteer and to visit K-12 classrooms, and get your school involved! Click "Get Involved" on our menu.
  • The next #ATLSciChat is January 26, 2-3pm with Dr. Marshall Shepherd, Director of University of Georgia's Atmospheric Sciences Program and host of The Weather Channel's Weather Geeks program. Participate on Twitter with the hashtag #ATLSciChat and chime in with your own questions!
