There is always something new and exciting for Atlantans to enjoy in the metro Atlanta area, and the Atlanta Science Festival is included in that list. On this week’s Around Atlanta edition of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio, Jordan Rose, Executive Co-Director of the Atlanta Science Festival, joins co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick to discuss the returning event.
Since its inaugural year in 2014, the Atlanta Science Festival has grown to include more than 100 different events for participants to enjoy, many free of charge. The variety of events offers something for all ages, and caters to varying levels of scientific knowledge. The Atlanta Science Festival serves to inform residents of Atlanta’s growth within the science industry as a “science metropolis” with excellent educational opportunities starting at K-12 schools to university level, as well as first-rate career opportunities.
“Atlanta is a hot bed for health information technology [as the] public health capital of the world,” said Rose. “There is a lot of excitement around science technology in this region and the Atlanta Science Festival is here to provide an entertaining way to connect to those opportunities.”
The Atlanta Science Festival spans over 65 venues throughout Atlanta from March 14 to March 25. A variety of events take place over the course of the festival, from facility tours and hands-on activities to stand-up comedy and punk-rock performances, as well as a zombie outbreak game at Emory University.
“If you are at all a curious person, you will find something to entertain you and attract you at the Atlanta Science Festival,” said Rose. “There are so many exciting things at this event and something for everyone.”
Guests will also be featured at the Atlanta Science Festival including astronaut and author Captain Mark Kelly, who will share personal experiences, as well as Captain Barrington Irving who set the record for the youngest person to fly solo around the world in an airplane that he built. Additionally, multiple vendors will have displays throughout the festival including Delta, Google, Georgia Power and Emory, to name a few.
