Sally Ride Science Festival
University of Washington-Bothell
October 4, 2014
For more than 14 years, Sally Ride Science Festivals have delivered a fun-filled day of science and socializing for 5th-8th grade students across the country. We’ve held more than 100 festivals on college campuses, averaging from 500 to 1,000 students, teachers, and parents at each festival.
To sign up as an individual, click Festival Tickets in the left-hand menu. To sign up a group of students, click Group Tickets. If you have been sponsored by an organization, click Sponsored Tickets.
Our festivals—sponsored by partners such as UW Bothell, Boeing, Google, and many other business and community leaders—put Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math directly in the hands of students. They are an ideal way for educators and parents to ignite student interest in STEM fields and careers.
With hands-on STEM workshops, a Street Fair with STEM exhibits, and more, Sally Ride Science Festivals spark today’s students to become tomorrow’s STEM leaders. The festivals offer an unequaled way for a sponsoring partner to generate awareness in its own backyard and across the nation.
We are honored to have former NASA Astronauts Wendy Lawrence, John Fabian and Korea's First Astronaut, Yi So-Yeon with us for the Festival.
