Discovery Walks - Science ATL
  • Discovery Walks

Science is all around us, often hidden in everyday places – where we live, where we play, and where we walk. On four self-guided Discovery Walks, you will uncover some of this secret science on family-friendly 2-4 mile routes, each with ten intriguing science stops.

No registration is necessary! Pick up a free Discovery Walk map on the designated event dates during the Atlanta Science Festival and take your family on a COVID-friendly science adventure through some of the coolest neighborhoods and parks in Atlanta.

All walks are self-guided. Please wear a mask and remain at least 6-feet from other people as you walk. Map handout will be contactless and handled only by masked volunteers.
