North Carolina Science Festival

The Future of Our Planet

This year we have chosen to develop all new activities and crafts based on technologies that are important to the future (ie water filtration, engineering, micro-mechanics, anatomy). This educational experience gives children the opportunity to participate in hands-on age appropriate activities that will help educate them about the future of our planet, current and future technologies, new medical advances, and environmental engineering. Ultimately, NC Science Festival wants everyone to know what they know -- science is fun and for everyone!

In accordance with COVID-19 regulations, we will implement safe, social distancing practices throughout the event. Face coverings will be required for each attendee over the age of five years and temperatures will be taken upon arrival at the event. Each adult in the group will be asked to review and acknowledge a health waiver.
