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.
