The Atlanta Science Festival (ASF), the city’s annual celebration of all things science, is returning this year on March 9-23.

This year’s festival — which will take place at venues throughout metro Atlanta — will feature over 100 interactive and educational events.

The festival kicks off with the Science and Engineering Day at Georgia Tech, an event that showcases hands-on activities, exhibits and demonstrations about subjects like robotics, biology, space, art, nanotechnology, computer science, wearable tech, bioengineering and more.

In addition, attendees will also have opportunities to meet numerous student researchers, as well as learn about all of the exciting things happening at Georgia Tech. 

Throughout the rest of the two-week-long festival, both adults and children alike can check out the participating venues to learn about a variety of interesting topics such as AI and brain imaging, amphibians and snapping turtles, bugs and birds, walks through oak forests, among others.

“The Atlanta Science Festival aims to celebrate science and spark curiosity,” said Meisa Salaita, executive co-director of Science ATL–the engineers of the Atlanta Science Festival. “We are thrilled for this year’s Festival and look forward to seeing the community come together through their appreciation for science.”

The final day of the event will culminate in the Exploration Expo, a massive science bash that is set to occur in Piedmont Park.

The Exploration Expo gives curious kids and inquisitive adults the chance to experience several interactive science booths and live presentations.

“We’re honored to create a space that showcases the talent, innovation, and creativity in the world of science,” said Salaita. “Our goal is to provide outlets that ensure underrepresented voices are heard, and that the reach of science learning continues to expand and be accessible to all.” 

Most of the festival events are free to attend, while others will require registration and/or a fee.
