CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The city’s ultimate celebration of all things scientific returns in March with 150 interactive and educational events happening all over town. Exploration Expo, a giant bash in Piedmont Park, wraps things up as the grand finale. “As we approach the 10th edition of the Atlanta Science Festival, I recall our original inspiration,” says Meisa Salaita, executive co-director of Science ATL. “We wanted to expand science learning access to all in metro Atlanta. It continues to be a privilege to watch the local science community grow alongside the Atlanta Science Festival, and we anticipate another amazing year.” The two-week event allows children and adults to explore coding, astronomy, nature walks, science/art mashups, and the intricacies of meditation. Not to mention an introduction to curling. Additionally, AI and brain imaging, the world’s fastest aircraft, amphibians and snakes, newts and nature trails, a science fashion show and secret parks, chemistry and coffee, as well as “time traveling teens on stage” are on the calendar, organizers say. Make of that what you will. “With the many advances in technology, science has taken on an even more vital role in today’s world,” Salaita added, “and we are proud to have the chance to brag that Atlanta really is a science city.” — KCM
