Explore four floors of hands-on science demonstrations from GSU departments and student groups.  Learn about the science of ice-cream (and make some yourself), how scuba diving gear works, and get a picture of yourself as a mad scientist!  You can also participate in a Scientist Scavenger hunt for GSU scientists.  Learn about their work, and win a prize!

Engage your brain and hands in GSU labs.  With the Lab Experience you can take part in a short college lab class run by the same instructors who teach our students!  In addition, take in our classes on your own time with our Lab Walk-throughs.  The Anatomy & Physiology, General Biology, Animal Biology, and Nursing labs will be open all day for you to explore.

Art and science meet in this active exhibit and presentation featuring the microscopic photography of Dr. Robert Simmons (GSU Biology) and Clay Turner (GSU Physics and Astronomy).  Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience the beauty and complexity of what we cannot see with the naked eye!

Be inspired by our three speakers (TBA) who will give you an overview of their life’s work and how their science touches our lives.  The afternoon will be capped-off by a catered reception where you can meet the speakers to learn more about them and their work.


Millions of years ago magma erupted near Atlanta. Now, we call it Stone Mountain. Join GSU Geosciences on a hike at Stone Mountain to explore this unique quartz dome. Don’t forget to stop by the visitor center where the geologists will explore the history of Stone Mountain and its future. Free with admission to the park.


Come to a unique look at the sky above, learn about our solar system and beyond, and see astronomy research in action at GSU’s Hard Labor Creek Observatory.  GSU astronomers will guide you in a viewing of the planets and stars in our night sky. Very limited free parking is available, please consider carpooling, and drive carefully.
