The Discovery Center at Water’s Edge, a forthcoming interactive world-class science center where visitors of all ages can experience hands-on science and technology, see tomorrow’s technology today, and learn the history of scientific discovery in our area, welcomed over 2,000 attendees at its first annual Magic of Science Fair and Family Festival on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the TUNE Building at Harford Community College.
The Magic of Science Fair and Family Festival is planned Saturday, June 11, 2022, at the TUNE Center at Harford Community College, located at 510 Thomas Run Road in Bel Air. The event will feature a major regional science fair, drone races, play areas, magic shows, science experiments, exhibits, entertainment, and vendor activities.
The day will feature the Magic of Science Fair, a regional science fair for middle school students, that begins at 9 a.m., and culminates with an awards ceremony at 3 p.m. The main Family Festival begins at 11 a.m., and lasts until 4 p.m. There will be activities for learners of all ages, from infants to adults. This event is free.
Other regions have grown their science festivals into international multi-day, multi-site events attracting hundreds of thousands of families to experience the “magic” of science. Atlanta, GA, Philadelphia, PA, and Cambridge, MA, are a few of the regions that host major science festivals and are the models upon which the Magic of Science Festival is built.
