The Flagstaff Festival of Science is a FREE 10-day event with field trips, guided hikes, star parties, open houses, hands-on exhibits, presentations and archaeological excavations!

The 2018 Festival of Science: Accelerating into the Future will explore astounding changes our lives may take in the next few years. For example, medical science is finding ways to reverse paralysis and replace bad genes; sustainable energy is becoming more efficient and affordable; computer recognition is tightening our personal security; and, artificial intelligence is getting smarter: our vehicles will soon be driving themselves!

Raj Rajkumar, Ph.D., a leading expert in driverless vehicles, will be helping to roll out the Festival as the Keynote Presenter, scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, in Northern Arizona University’s Ardrey Auditorium.

Science in the Park will be 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22, at Wheeler Park.
