CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The 2022 edition of the Atlanta Science Festival will delve into the environment, earth and space, the animal kingdom, the arts, and health and the human body. There will be nature walks, creature encounters, hands-on experiments, and science-themed performances throughout the city during its two-week run. The ninth annual festival wraps up with a party in Piedmont Park dubbed the Exploration Expo. Executive Director Meisa Salaita says the ASF “has become synonymous with engaging and accessible science exploration for all ages, while celebrating diversity and our city as a science hub.” Science lovers from around the world get to experience the events online. “Today science is more relevant than ever,” Salaita says. “And just as science evolves, our festival continues to grow and expand in ways we never thought possible.” — KCM
