Resources & Toolkits

Innovation is what science festivals are all about and each is as unique as the community it serves, but there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Find sample calendars, budgets, forms, templates, evaluations, and much more—generously shared by SFA members and other supporters of public science outreach.

Contact us if you don’t see what you’re looking for or would like to share materials you’ve created.
