WeatherFest

The AMS 13th Annual WeatherFest is coming to Atlanta!

WeatherFest is an interactive science and weather fair for weather enthusiasts of all ages. Children and parents are invited to come to WeatherFest to see weather-related demonstrations, participate in hands-on activities, and even give the weather forecast in front of an actual television green screen! There will be games, give-aways, and more! Make plans to bring your children to this fun, educational, and engaging event. Hosted by the American Meteorological Society.


What is WeatherFest?
WeatherFest is an interactive four-hour science and weather fair designed to instill a love for math and science in children of all ages and to spark a young person’s interest in this area so they may consider a career in these and other science and engineering fields. This event provides a unique opportunity for your organization to reach a targeted audience of weather enthusiasts and to support education and outreach for the atmospheric and related sciences. The event is free to exhibit and free to attend!

When is WeatherFest?
WeatherFest, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, will be held on Sunday, 2 February 2014, from 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Where is WeatherFest?
WeatherFest 2014 will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta (Hall C3).

Who can attend?
WeatherFest is a public event open to everyone, and geared toward K-12 students.  We’ll have nearly 70 cool and interactive science exhibits including hands-on experiments, educational information, career guides and much more.
