Discovery Day

Discovery Day at Tellus Science Museum

Discovery Day

Saturday, November 19, 2016

10 AM – 5 PM

Members: FREE
Non-Members: Regular Admission

Bring out your inner maker! 

Discovery Day is all about curiosity, creating, and collaborating. Meet with tinkerers, makers, and artists as they share their creative creations, innovative inventions, and rehabilitated robots. Explore scientific and artistic curiosities. Bring Discovery Day home when you make and take your own creations!

On Discovery Day, Tellus will bring together science, engineering, art, and crafts in a non-traditional, hands-on, experience-based celebration of maker culture. From robotics to fashion, there’s something for everyone to learn about and participate in! Be ready for eclectic surprises and silly, science fun!

Enjoy demonstrations and hands-on activities (until 4 PM) by our Discovery Day partners:

Darlington Robotics                                                   Cartersville Robotics

Georgia Highlands College                                       Atlanta Maker Faire

And many more!

Discovery Day is FREE to members and open to the public with general admission.

We can also showcase YOUR work! If you are passionate about innovation and want to share your work, apply to get in on the act for our Discovery Day.

Are YOU a maker?

Showcase your work at our Discovery Day. Whether your work is artistic, scientific, or just plain fun, it needs to have an interactive component for our visitors. All ages can bring their work, but makers under eighteen should bring an adult to help. We love explosions too, but those won’t work in the museum. Also no fire, liquids, or a big mess.
