Posted by Dena Mellick March 10, 2016


The Fernbank Science Center is kicking off the Atlanta Science Festival with Nano Day.

The free event takes place on Saturday, Mar. 19 from noon until 3 p.m. at the science center.

Nano Day is geared toward ages 5 and up and will feature live presentations and hands-on displays all focused on advances in nanoscience. The center says there will also be a chemical magic show, games, and a nano-themed story time.

The Atlanta Science Festival takes place Mar. 19-26. The website says it’s “an annual public celebration of local science and technology” and was founded by Emory University, Georgia Tech, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

A calendar of events for the festival can be found online. Some are free while others require admission and/or advanced registration. Events include a bird walk, a robot showcase, and a bicycle scavenger hunt to name a few. The festival says there are more than 100 events each year since the inaugural festival in 2014.
