Sponsor - Science ATL
  • Become a Sponsor

Science ATL Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings people together through the wonder of science.

Founded in 2014 by Emory University, Georgia Tech, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Science ATL produces the annual Atlanta Science Festival which has brought science programming to more than 400,000 people in the metro Atlanta region. The two-week Festival celebrates local science and technology every March, and culminates in the Exploration Expo, Atlanta’s biggest interactive family science event. Building on this success, Science ATL offers year-round science engagement for all ages through public events, a youth STEM leadership program, school partnership initiatives, self-guided family activities: Passport and Discovery Walks, a community events calendar, and more!

Through all of these initiatives, we are committed to build an equitable community of science lovers in Atlanta, and we focus efforts to engage with youth and families from historically marginalized groups. Last year, we partnered with 77 schools in low Child Well-Being zip codes, and ensured that 75% of our STEM professional volunteers were from historically underrepresented racial/ethnic/gender groups in the sciences – because representation matters.

As a Science ATL sponsor, you can support our programs, engage your employees as volunteers, and share family learning opportunities with your constituents. With your support, we can bring even more people together through the wonder of science!

Where Your Support Is Needed

Employee Engagement

Science ATL would love your employees to engage as volunteers at our events and in our school programs. We are particularly interested in those who are in STEM careers and are from historically underrepresented groups in STEM. Employees can also support your sponsor exhibit at the Atlanta Science Festival Expo for a day of team-building and community engagement.

Financial Support

Your financial support in one or more of the following areas will help us reach 400,000 more community members in the next 10 years:

  • General Support – We prefer to receive unrestricted funds that allow us the most flexibility to meet our mission, covering operating expenses or to fill gaps in programmatic funding. However, if you are interested in supporting specific programs, our top priorities are listed below. We would love to hear about your specific interests.
  • Public Events – From the Atlanta Science Festival in March, to monthly guided hikes, science storytelling, intergenerational book clubs, and more, we are building community around science and we are creating opportunities for curious kids and adults to engage in positive science experiences throughout the year.
  • School & Youth Programs – To build community around science and to foster equitable access to science learning, our programs empower youth to lead projects that bring STEM opportunities to their peers, and our programs build K-12 schools’ capacity to partner with STEM professionals.
  • Volunteer Program – To build community among our volunteers and prepare STEM professionals to have meaningful impact on community members, we are strengthening our efforts to recruit, train, appreciate, communicate with, and retain volunteers.
