AZ SciTech Festival 2012

As Arizona approaches its centennial celebration, the pace picks up for planning the festivities! The festival, in collaboration with Arizona's Centennial Celebration, is Arizona's 2012 platform for fueling public excitement and understanding of Arizona's world leadership in science, technology and innovation. About the Festival The Arizona SciTech Festival will take place February-March 2012 and will offer a series of hands-on activities and workshops, conversations and debates, exhibitions, concerts, guided walks and tours. Showcasing Arizona The Arizona Scitech Festival showcases Arizona as a national leader in science, technology and innovation through a series of events taking place during the month of February 2012. Spearheaded by the Arizona Technology Council Foundation in partnership with Arizona State University and Arizona Science Center, the Arizona SciTech Festival is a grass roots collaboration of over 200 organizations in industry, academia, arts, community and K-12, geared to excite and inform Arizonans ages three to 103 about how science, technology and innovation will drive our state for the next 100 years. "What is a science festival anyway?" Science festivals are public celebrations that offer a wide range of science, technology, engineering and math-related activities; creative exhibitions, demonstrations, performances, tours, debates, workshops and concerts, over a period of several days or weeks, in a variety of locations. ACMRS is a proud Friend of the Festival and is working with hundreds of other organizations statewide to help promote this amazing event.
