Since 1967, Fernbank Science Center has supported science education in the DeKalb County School District and the wider community. Nearly every student who has attended a DeKalb school has experienced planetarium shows in the Jim Cherry Memorial Planetarium, gone for nature walks in Fernbank Forest or through the Reach Program, or had a Fernbank Science Center instructor teach them at their school or in the labs at the center. Generations of students have been touched with what the science center has to offer.
1:00 - 3:00 PM at Fernbank Science Center
Participants build their bridges in advance and bring them to the event. There the bridges will be tested to failure (i.e. broken) to measure their load carrying ability.
Join us for Snake Day at Fernbank Science Center. Many reptiles will be on display and there will be hands-on activities for all ages.
