Science Festival


The 6th Annual Tallahassee Science Festival will take place on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 from 10am-2pm at Kleman Plaza.

With a heavy focus on S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), booths will feature activities and exhibits driven by problem-solving and creative-thinking. The Tallahassee Science Festival promises to be a fun and dynamic learning experience for the entire community.

This FREE event is an incredible, hands-on experience for children of all ages. 

Last year there were over 115 exhibits representing many local prominent scientific organizations and clubs including the National MagLab, Florida A&M University, Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, The State of Florida, Leon County, The City of Tallahassee, and many other local STEM based organizations. Presenters came from as far away as Gainesville, Tampa and Pensacola. Over 6,000 kids brought their parents out to enjoy a fun day of hands-on experiences.
