We want Cobb teachers to be a part of the Atlanta Science Festival. Our participation will be virtual and take place in our classrooms, but we're still taking part! See how below!
The first event of its kind in the Metro area, The Atlanta Science Festival is a weeklong celebration of local science and technology that culminates with an all-day interactive Exploration Expo at Centennial Olympic Park. Scientists, experts and educators from local schools, colleges, universities, museums, and corporations will uncover mysteries and explain discoveries in hands-on activities, facility tours, stimulating presentations, and riveting performances at venues across the city. Our mission is to celebrate the inherent integration of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in our lives today, share the impact they have on our community, and inspire us all to wonder about our future. The Festival, which runs March 22-29, is produced by a collaboration of science, cultural, and educational institutions, led by Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

The online Educator Toolkit has everything educators need to engage with the Atlanta Science Festival: cash incentives to attend the Expo, classroom flyer, volunteer opportunities, and links to relevant Festival events including teacher workshops and a web design challenge.
