Overview

DUE TO A HIGH CHANCE OF STORMS, WE HAVE RESCHEDULED FOR APRIL 28.

Join us for “A Day for Science” in downtown Mobile’s Bienville Square!

This free open-air science fair for all ages will feature booths with local scientists and science-based organizations, and local students are invited to bring their science fair showboards for a poster session! We’ll have a sign-making contest, keynote speakers Dr. Kristine DeLong and Ben Raines discussing The Underwater Forest, and a Parade for Science. Bring the kids, a spirit of fun, and your love for science!

Our list of exhibitors includes the Alabama Coastal Bird Stewardship Program, Alabama Coastal Foundation, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Girls Exploring Math & Science, Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center, the LSU Paleoclimate and Anthropology Studies Lab, Mobile Baykeeper, Mobile Environmental Justice Action Coalition, Mobile Medical Museum, Mobile Public Library Makerlab, the USA Student Sustainability Council and Home Grown, USACE Tribal Nations Technical Center of Expertise, and local student science fair competitors.

“A Day for Science” gives the public a chance to meet local scientists, learn about the wide variety of fascinating science being done in our community, and advocate for the importance of science in public policy and our community. This event is an official satellite event of the national March for Science event taking place on the same day.

We are committed to the idea that diverse participation in and support of science makes science better for everyone. To that end we welcome people of all races, ages, faiths, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, immigration status, and classes, who care about science and its role in society.

We hope to see you there!
