The Festival will go well beyond the walls of children’s museums and science centers and into businesses, universities, schools and neighborhoods to promote SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS and MATH.   From families to young adults,  Tennesseans of all ages and backgrounds will interact with scientists, engineers, and designers and just about every expert in between.  Festival events will take place in urban and rural areas across the state over the course of ten days,
insuring that the Festival reaches and engages a widespread audience.
