The Atlanta Science Festival will begin Saturday with its signature launch event, the “Wow in the World Pop Up Party,” based on the popular NPR science-themed podcast “Wow in the World.” Host Mindy Thomas serves up games and skits with live musical accompaniment by the Pop Ups, creators of the “Wow in the World” theme song.
After the Wow in the World Pop Up Party launch event, the following two weeks will find guests exploring science and technology at more than 100 engaging events, ranging in cost from free to a nominal fee. These include hands-on activities, facility tours, presentations, and performances at a variety of locations throughout Metro Atlanta. Expect drones and nano-tattoos, panda yoga and comedy, archeological digs, nature walks, ice cream tastings, art, trivia, curling, superheroes, beavers, newts, and bees. And that’s just the tip of the telescope.
