Make plans for Atlanta Science Festival, March 9-23, 2019

February 10, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Atlanta Science Festival returns next month, March 9-23, 2019, with a broad slate of activities for kids, teens and adults.

Among this year’s events for kids are:

  • Mathapalooza, a sort of math open-house that challenges kids with math games and puzzles. Saturday, March 9, at the Ebster Recreation Center in Decatur.
  • Astronaut Job Fair, a full-day event for kids ages 9 to 13, to tickle their imagination about the possibilities of working in space. Monday, March 18, at Fernbank Science Center.
  • Pi Day, math-related fun for younger kids. Thursday, March 14, at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta.
  • Family Zoo Safari Camp, a three-hour program that introduces kids ages 4 to 13 (with their parents) to what it’s like to be a zookeeper. Saturday, March 16, at Zoo Atlanta.
  • Eco-Geo Expedition, a scavenger hunt at Arabia Mountain. Sunday, March 17.

Teens (and adults) have plenty to choose from as well: introduction to curling (the Olympic sport)  . . . outer space in science fiction . . . neuro-engineering . . . honeybees . . . and much, much more.

There are literally dozens upon dozens of programs and events to choose from, far more than I can list here.

They’re not all downtown, either. Scanning the events list, I saw locations from Mableton to Marietta.

Many events have limited space and require you to register ahead, so don’t wait until the last minute to take a look and sign up.

As it does each year, the festival culminates in the Exploration Expo, a free event with more than 100 informative and interactive booths, Saturday, March 23 at Piedmont Park.
