Texas Science Festival Will Inspire Texans Through Scientific Discovery
2 February 2023
Sponsored by The University of Texas at Austin, the hybrid festival will feature scientists, authors and innovators both virtually and in person at UT locations, including the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas. The festival will feature panels, podcasts, storytelling, activities and social events that explore everything from medical breakthroughs and energy innovation to understanding outer space — and even the science of barbecue and bluebonnets.
Highlights of the festival will include:
Astronomy discussions where attendees will “glimpse the early universe,” hear about research from the James Webb Space Telescope, and take a tour of deep sky views with the McDonald Observatory livestreaming from its powerful West Texas telescope.
All events are free and open to the public. The schedule and registration can be found at sciencefest.utexas.edu.
