Nature Designs Art Festival

Nature Designs Art Festival is an official event of the 2017 North Carolina Science Festival presented by the Biogen Foundation.
 
This new event spotlights works of art and design found in nature. Learning and creation stations will be setup within walking distance from each other throughout the park.  Take a story walk, create tree art, investigate the designs of spider webs, make nature crafts, nature journaling, enjoy the Forest Puppet Theater, and so much more.   Included in this event will be exhibits celebrating Earth Day.
 
As an official 2017 North Carolina Science Festival event, Raven Rock State Park is among hundreds of community-based events that are showcasing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities for the citizens of North Carolina.
 
Founded in 2010, the North Carolina Science Festival is the first statewide science festival in the United States.  Through a two-week series of community-based events each spring (hosted by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses and other local organizations), the Festival celebrates the economic, educational and cultural impact of science in North Carolina.
 
“Science is fun, science is everywhere, science is for everyone — that’s what the North Carolina Science Festival is all about,” said Jonathan Frederick, Festival director. “In 2017, we have a special focus on ‘Art and Design’ with events from April 7 through April 23.”
 
The North Carolina Science Festival is presented by the Biogen Foundation and produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information, visit www.ncsciencefestival.org
