The 2014 North Carolina Science Festival, a statewide celebration of science and technology, is themed “Life is Your Lab,” and for two and a half weeks at the end of March and beginning of April, it will certainly feel like that here on campus.
Expanding on its traditional Science and Technology Expo presentation (now in its third year), UNC Charlotte is also offering a seven-event public science lecture series, a four-event film series and a star party. The Expo will close out the Festival on April 13 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM with a greatly expanded set of acts, including robotics, motorsports engineering, rocketry, virtual people, exotic plants and high altitude balloons. The event is for the science-curious of all ages, featuring well over 100 hands-on activities and presentations in chemistry, physics, geology, computer science, engineering and biology developed by the University and a host of industry and community organizations.
All events are free and open to the public.
