ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Los Alamos ScienceFest 2021: "Driven By Science"
Each year, thousands typically participate in Los Alamos ScienceFest week and Discovery Day. Under current restrictions due to COVID-19, however, the iconic event has been forced to adapt. Returning this July 6-11 for its 14th year, Los Alamos ScienceFest will feature a dynamic line-up of activities for all ages, celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) topics under the theme, "Driven By Science." Some of our events will be virtual, and some (hopefully) safely done in person. More details on specific topics will be announced soon, but please follow us on Facebook for the latest.
We also have an exciting adaptation for 2021 Discovery Day, which enables participants to discover hands-on science activities!
Los Alamos ScienceFest, now in its 14th year, celebrates the history and science of Los Alamos through fun and engaging activities and events for people of all ages. This signature event of Los Alamos is well attended and draws visitors from across the state of
New Mexico and beyond.
It is our mission to:
Celebrate the scientific heritage and excellence of our community by showcasing cultural activities for people of all ages
Connect with scientists and engineers and experience how science affects our everyday lives
Raise awareness of STEM education (and future science and technology)!
Enable enrichment through science and technology
