NC Science Festival

Explore 4-H and science
Celebrate science with the NC Science Festival.  Fun activities are offered across the state.  To celebrate, Watauga County 4-H is offering 4-H “Grow Green” for 5-12 year olds from 3:30-4:30.    Get ready for Earth Day by exploring some hands-on science with a “grow green” theme.   The workshop will be held at the Agricultural Conference Center.

North Carolina Science Festival is a two-week-long, 500-mile-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Across the state, North Carolinians participate in science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits, performances and other activities, hosted by all kinds of community organizations –schools, colleges and universities, parks, libraries, museums and businesses.

NCSF was founded in 2010 by UNC-Chapel Hill’s Morehead Planetarium and Science Center and is the first statewide science festival in the U.S. Morehead continues to produce the Festival in partnership with many sponsors and event hosts. The 2013 Festival is scheduled for April 5-21, and Time Warner Cable is the 2013 Festival Champion.
