Tallahassee to host sixth annual Science Festival for all ages

This Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017, from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m, the sixth annual Tallahassee Science festival will be held at the Kleman Plaza, near the FSU campus. To get into the festival it is free, but vendors may have things available for purchase. The festival has over 100 booths and exhibits for all ages. Booths and exhibits are centered on the STEM programs: science, technology, engineering, and math.

The booths will be hands-on for all ages and will be “driven by problem-solving and creative-thinking,” and “promises to be a fun and dynamic learning experience for the entire community,” according to tallahasseearts.org.

“Last year there were over 120 presenters representing The National Magnetic Lab, Florida A&M, FSU, Tallahassee Community College, The State of Florida, Leon County, The City of Tallahassee, and many local STEAM based organizations,” Tallahassee Arts reported. In total, 6,000 kids visited the festival throughout the day, and they are expecting that many or more this year.

They will have on-site food trucks, including Valhalla Grill, Caribbean Crossroads, Smackin’ Good Wings and Sweet Journey Dessert. Harry’s Seafood will be providing free appetizers, and they will also be selling food.
