Atlanta Science Festival
The Atlanta Science Festival is an annual celebration of the world-class learning and STEM career opportunities in metro Atlanta, featuring 100+ engaging events for curious kids and adults at venues all across the region. The Festival is engineered by Science ATL and 50+ community partners, with major support from founders Emory University, Georgia Tech, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber, and from sponsors Delta Air Lines, NCR Foundation, UPS, International Paper, and more.
We are committed to expanding access to science learning opportunities for all in metro Atlanta, and our evaluations show that the racial/ethnic diversity among Festival attendees closely matches that of the metro Atlanta region. The Festival reaches a wide variety of ages, with 50% of attendees aged 25-44 (not including those under 14 years old, who were not surveyed). Learn more in our latest report.
