The agenda of festivities is for more than just for science geeks and elementary school teachers -- the festival offers specific functions that cater to most demographics, personalities, and age groups. Each event is designed to provide viewers and participants with informative and motivational introductions to science in a unique way.

Festival director, Jeremy Barbendure says the idea behind the festival is for audiences to get excited about science and is creating fun ways to become engaged through a variety of educational exercises.
