A smartphone, a tasty beer, and a drum concert by a musician with a prosthetic arm: All brought to you by . . . science. To explain the how and why of these phenomena and many others—and to demonstrate how science connects to everyday life—Atlanta Science Festival was launched last year. It culminated with a free daylong expo attended by 16,000. The next fest is scheduled for spring 2015.
