The Dahlonega Science Council is a group dedicated to bringing community science education events and opportunities to the areas of north Georgia in and around Dahlonega. Our main activities are to organize and host an annual community Science Festival and to coordinate regular monthly speakers for the Dahlonega Science Café. Informal science learning events like these are ideal for engaging everyone in a community in science by increasing interest, creating a dialogue between scientists and the public, providing social context for science issues, and opening up discussion and debate between scientists and their communities.
The National Research Council proposes that participation in these type of events can improve science literacy and, “lead to further inquiry, enjoyment, and a sense that science learning can be personally relevant and rewarding” (NRC, 2009. p.12). Our goal is to create and support such events to develop science literacy in the community, build community support for science, and to increase youth interest in STEM careers.
Our group is has 501(c)3 status as a non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
