Do you like science? Do you want to show others how science plays a part in everyday life? Well soon you can!
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer along with other top state science and technology officials announced plans last week for the first Arizona SciTech Festival next year.
The SciTech Festival will begin in February and last six weeks. The statewide event will coincide with the state’s centennial celebrations, and the celebration of Girl Scouts 100th anniversary! Throughout the six weeks, science and technology workshops, events, and activities will occur throughout the state to show the public that science and technology truly are everywhere.
For example, spring training in the Valley will kick off in February with the Scottsdale Baseball Festival and a special Science of Baseball event. The Arizona Renaissance Festival in March will similarly address science with a focus on the age of discovery, including topics such as Galileo and astronomy.
You too can get in on the action!
Arizona SciTech is calling all middle school and high school students with science skills and knowledge to share their expertise with the public by hosting a booth at a signature event or conducting a workshop at a neighborhood pub. Have something to demonstrate? Students can also host a workshop on their desired project.
