Special Opportunities

Most North Carolina Science Festival events are local and community-based, but a few events are so big that they reach North Carolinians across the state! Learn more about these 2016 statewide events here:

Two cars racing in the Gravity Games in Lenoir NC.

  • NC Gravity Games Join the competition that combines engineering, design, teamwork and speed. Sign up for the NC Gravity Games, a soap-box-derby style race sponsored by Google and Appalachian State University. Details here
  • North Carolina Statewide Star Party On Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9 the North Carolina Science Festival is kicking off its celebration in style with the 4th annual Statewide Star Party. Details here


In addition to events, the Festival highlights local opportunities that are science related but that do not occur at a specific time (for example, exhibits).
