North Carolina Science Festival

Festival Description

NCSF_RGBThe North Carolina Science Festival is a multi-day celebration showcasing science and technology. The Festival highlights the educational, cultural and financial impacts of science in our state. Through hands-on activities, science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits and performances, the Festival engages a wide range of public audiences while inspiring future generations.
The North Carolina Science Festival and others like it offer an opportunity to celebrate science in fun and welcoming settings. This Festival provides the opportunity to cultivate a positive environment that encourages children to pursue science-related careers and encourages businesses to invest in North Carolina.

In an era when recent reports indicate that the United States is losing ground as the world leader in science and technology, and fewer students than ever are pursuing careers in science and technology, the North Carolina Science Festival energizes our state’s effort to respond to these challenges while building new and stronger relationships among the education, business and cultural leaders who will lead that response.

Most importantly, scientists want everyone to know what they know – that science is fun!

The North Carolina Science Festival is an initiative of Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.
