The Virginia Tech Science Festival is a Saturday celebration of science as a way of knowing.  Held since 2014, this expo-style, family-friendly event reaches 4,000-6,000 visitors, including families, school field trips, and Virginia Tech students. Festival guests participate in hands-on activities, see engaging demonstrations, and talk one-on-one with practicing scientists at about 100 different exhibits.  Based on the idea that “science is bigger than you think,” the festival features a range of disciplines that use data to draw conclusions. Science is … life, process, safety, and robotics, the earth, and well-being. Science is on the road and in the arts. The festival is a collaboration across most of the colleges and research institutes on campus, as well as many community members.  Supported by the College Access Collaborative, the festival budget funds buses for school field trips from area schools, as well as charter buses from three College Access regions in the state.
