The Atlanta Science Festival is an annual public celebration of local science and technology. Curious people of all ages will explore the science and technology in our region and see how science is connected to all parts of our lives in 100 engaging events, including hands-on activities, facility tours, presentations, and performances throughout the metro Atlanta region. The Festival culminates in the free, family-friendly EXPLORATION EXPO - an interactive day of hands-on activities and shows at Centennial Olympic Park. Stay tuned... we'll be back in 2017!


Despite the gloomy day, the Atlanta Science Festival's EXPLORATION EXPO shined on! Nearly 20,000 people explored the world of STEAM at more than 100 interactive exhibits, hands-on experiments, mind blowing demos and a full line-up of science-themed performances! We look forward to seeing you there next year!
Dress up as your favorite element! Parade the streets of Atlanta dressed as Einstein, Curie, Carver, Euclid, Nye, or deGrasse Tyson! No matter your costume, join us in our first science-themed parade into the park on Expo Day! We can't wait to see your creativity!
In this special evening event, immerse yourself in the science of chocolate making with one of our city's treasures - Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Company. Get a behind the scenes glimpse at the chocolate factory and hear the chocolate maker himself tell you about the science behind every step, from genetic diversity of the cacao crops to fermentation. We’ll have a special varietal chocolate tasting and glasses on hand, so feel free to bring your own bottle of wine, champagne or beer! This event is designed for adults. Register early as this event will fill fast.
Ever play with giant soap bubbles, ride a hovercraft, or taste liquid nitrogen ice cream? How about journey through space and time as you gaze at the stars? Now you can with Physics Live! Come join the faculty and students at Emory University’s Department of Physics for an afternoon and evening of science exploration! Loads of exciting demonstrations (K-12 encouraged), Planetarium shows (limited seating), and Laboratory tours (research in action!). A great field trip opportunity!

Whether we wear white lab coats or haven’t seen a test tube since the 8th grade, science affects and changes us. Those influences and transformations are the stuff of stories and the life blood of the Story Collider. The famed NYC-based group is visiting Atlanta, and, on this special evening, we invite you to come and hear local scientists and non-scientists alike share their personal stories of science’s impacts on their lives. Whether they seek out stars through telescopes, or peace of mind in doctors’ offices, every story is curiously human.
