Mississippi Science Festival

The 5th Annual Mississippi Science Fest (MSF), presented by C Spire, is a fun, online event hosted by the four museums of Jackson, Mississippi’s LeFleur Museum District (LMD) on the LMD’s Facebook page on September 18-19, 2020.

The MSF was originally organized by leaders from all four museums of the LMD to showcase the Magnolia State’s innovative science, technology, engineering, and mathematic (STEM) industries and organizations. Due to COVID-19, this year’s MSF will be conducted online and a supplemental activity kit will be available to purchase online for $15. Purchase your kit here!


Please check the Mississippi Science Fest website for further updates including the topics to be covered in the fun, educational videos that will be posted on the LMD Facebook page by our museums and partners.
