More than 30,000 people were “blinded by science” during the inaugural Atlanta Science Festival, an eight-day celebration of science and technology filled with more than 100 events across 50 locations in metro Atlanta. The Festival’s flagship event, The Exploration Expo on March 29, drew more than 16,000 of Atlanta’s most scientifically curious residents.

The ultimate FREE family-fun science event on Saturday, March 29 11 am - 4 pm at the Georgia World Congress Center, including interactive activities and performances that celebrate the excitement of science, technology, engineering and math in Atlanta.

This session will alternate jazz sets with brief lectures on the materials that make the instrument and the instrument design.

At this special evening event at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta, Science stations will be set up in each learning zone for hands-on exploration and fun.

A collaborative team of arborist Jamie Blackburn of Arborguard, Inc, landscape architect and ecologist Alfie Vick, and nature photographer Kathryn Kolb will lead visitors through a tree tour of Agnes Scott College. With a large collection of native and exotic trees on the tour, you will learn about trees that you pass everyday or have yet to discover. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on the complex connections between trees and humans and the integral role that trees play in our lives.  The tour will be about 2 hours in length.
