The 10th Annual Tallahassee Science Festival will be held at Kleman Plaza on Saturday, October 16, 2021 from 10am-12pm. The Science Festival is FREE and open to the public. 

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 annual event is an incredible, hands-on experience for children of all ages. Local prominent scientific organizations and clubs including the National Magnetic Lab, Florida A&M, FSU, Tallahassee Community College, The State of Florida, Leon County, The City of Tallahassee, and many local STEM based organizations will be participating at this year’s event. Come enjoy a fun day of hands-on experiences. 

This year’s Tallahassee Science Festival is being presented by Tallahassee Community College in partnership with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Innovation Park of Tallahassee, The Tallahassee Scientific Society, Duke Energy, Rethink Energy and Leon County Schools. 

Former NASA Astronaut Dorothy Metcalf-Lindenberger who served as a mission specialist on STS-131 and logged more than 362 hours in space, will join our community virtually for two presentations and Q&A sessions.
