2018 Festival - Community Activities

Submitted by dahlonegascience on Sun, 03/04/2018 - 18:57

We invited the Dahlonega Community to participate and host science-based activities in their businesses.   While these activities are not sponsored by the festival organizers, they are an important part of a community festival.  The Dahlonega Science Festival is proud to have these organizations participating in the festival by presenting science related sessions in their businesses.

Paul Thomas Chocolates:  CANCELLED - Please enjoy one of our other activities at this time.

12:30 - 1:30

Canvas & Cork @ Littlefield Cottage:  The Chemistry of Art - Chemistry has always been a part of art, remember: color is a result of absorbing certain wavelengths of light. Come to learn about the ancient and modern history, chemistry and demonstration of indigo (aka “blue gold’) dying. Also, see and hear about the alcohol ink painting, what makes it so “forgiving”, what’s the difference between a dye and a pigment? Finally, ask questions about acid etching of soft metals and see it done!
