Michigan State University Science Festival

The MSU Science Festival is a multiday series of events that takes place annually in April. It highlights science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) and seeks to stimulate an interest in and awareness of the many ways that we encounter STEAM in our daily lives. Multiple venues offer exciting opportunities to experience STEAM through talks, demonstrations, tours, open houses, guest speakers, and hands-on activities for lifelong learners of all ages. Special events are held across the state with a concentration of activities on the MSU campus and in the Greater Lansing area. Events are open to the general public and free of charge. 

The MSU Science Festival also hosts a program specifically for K-12 students. Presenters create connections to classroom curricula, and students discover career opportunities from experts themselves.
