Tennessee STEAM Festival

10.12.2017 - 10.22.2017

Festival Description


The first ever Tennessee STEAM Festival will take place in October 2017. The Festival will go well beyond the walls of children’s museums and science centers and into our businesses, universities, schools, and neighborhoods. From families to young adults, Tennesseans of all ages and backgrounds will interact with scientists, engineers, and designers, and just about every sort of expert in between.

This inaugural year features more than 70 events across the state of Tennessee with events for all ages and interests!

  • Stargazing and fermentation science at a vineyard
  • Fastball Physics with a top tier baseball program
  • Launching 10 lbs pumpkins across a farm
  • Looking at the psycho-physiological effects of horror movies while watching Friday the 13th
  • Drones 101
  • A lab experimenting with the science of bowling
  • Genetics activities before a Rocky Horror Picture Show screening
  • Sauerkraut making workshop
  • Plus many more!
