The Roswell Museum and Art Center, in collaboration with area educational, science and cultural leaders, is presenting the Roswell Science and Art Festival on Saturday, October 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Roswell Museum and Art Center and behind the museum on 11th Street. This free all-ages event will present a fun-filled day of science and art opportunities including hands-on projects and demonstrations, stage presentations, brief “mini” lectures on innovative science topics, star shows, short science-inspired films, and a student gallery. The festival aims to engage our community in art and science and to inspire the next generation of creative thinkers.
Special guest Dr. Kate Biberdorf, known as “Kate the Chemist,” will be headlining the festival with a performance at 11:00 a.m. on the outdoor stage. She is highly motivated to inspire students of all ages to pursue science. Kate’s work has spread like wildfire and she’s caught the attention of national news programs and advocates. Her demos have been featured by NBC Nightly News, CNN’s Great Big Story, and the Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet, and she was recently on CBS’s Late Night with Stephen Colbert.
This event is generously funded by Xcel Energy and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation through MIT and the Science Festival Alliance with additional support provided by the RMAC Foundation.
