Perhaps you’ve attended an art festival before. Or a movie fest. Or a Greek fest. Or a beer fest. But have you ever attended a science festival? If that thought appeals to you, then 2010 is your year!
Morehead is coordinating the first ever North Carolina Science Festival to be held this Sept. 11 – Sept. 26. The goal of the Festival is quite simple – to engage more North Carolinians in science. We’ll do this by highlighting hands-on activities, science talks, exhibits, nature experiences, lab tours and other science-related activities taking place across the state. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, it’s going to be lots of fun.
Please check the North Carolina Science Festival web site regularly for updates. If you have a cool idea for the Festival, please let me or Julie Rhodes, Festival coordinator, know.
And if the North Carolina Science Festival leaves you wanting more, join Morehead staff – and about a million other people (literally!) – on the National Mall in DC for the USA Science and Engineering Festival Expo from Oct. 23-24. Morehead is an official partner of this event.
Denise Young is Morehead’s director of education and planning. She’s never met a festival she didn’t like.
