Science Rising is a nationwide mobilization effort taking place throughout 2018 in the run-up to the midterm elections. It is not a one-day march—it is a series of local activities, events, and actions organized by many different groups.
Our shared goal is to ensure that science is front-and-center in the decision-making processes that affect us all—and to fight back against efforts that sideline science from its crucial role in our democracy.
Tennessee STEAM Festival
October 12 - October 21
The inaugural Tennessee STEAM Festival inaugurated in 2017, and is coming back in 2018 even bigger than before. The Festival will go well beyond the walls of children’s museums and science centers and into our businesses, universities, schools, and neighborhoods. From families to young adults, Tennesseans of all ages and backgrounds will interact with scientists, engineers, and designers and just about every sort of expert in between. A full slate of 2018 events is coming soon–stay tuned!
