Over 100,000 attended AZ SciTech Festival

Over 100,000 Arizonans attended an Arizona SciTech Festival event, with over 300 people attending four events or more, according to Festival director Jeremy Babendure. In a summary wrap up emailed to participants, Jeremy said events such as Geeks Night Out, ASU Night of the Open Door, Chandler Science Spectacular and Tucson's Science in the City embraced their own definition of “celebrating science” and organized community resources and volunteers to carry out not only the vision of their particular event, but that of the greater festival as well. Getting individual groups involved in the festival at the community level allowed each event to take on a life of its own and provide more value to the community that it served."
