Colorado Springs Cool Science Festival 2021 | Kids Out and About Denver

Colorado Springs Cool Science Festival 2021

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 10/23/2021
In addition to Cool Science Carnival Day the CSCSF features 9 days of exciting, educational and engaging special events designed to showcase STEAM where it's taking place in Colorado Springs and around the Pikes Peak Region. You'll see that we've even squeezed in several events taking place before and after the "official" festival- there's just too much cool science happening in the Pikes Peak Region! We're kicking it off this year with a special pre-festival stargazing event at Thomas MacLaren School on Saturday, October 2nd. There will be food trucks, the Mobile Earth & Space Observatory (MESO), plenty of telescopes from members of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society and of course Cool Science will be there with some fun activities an information about Carnival Day at UCCS and the rest of the festival's exciting events! What a great way to get fired up for Carnival Day!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
As always, the festival kicks off with the 2021 Cool Science Carnival Day for Kids at UCCS on Saturday, October 9th from 10 am to 4 pm.  We'll have exciting demonstration shows, laboratory tours and demos, rockets, drones, animals and lots of other hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) activities and exhibits for kids (primarily K-8th grades).  It's all FREE (including parking) and fun for all ages!
There are events for all ages- adults, kids, teens and families - and most are absolutely free (some events may have a small fee to help the hosts cover their costs). 
Find more information about the special events and let us know what you think about the festival on our Facebook page.
