SCIENCE FAIR

WHERE SCIENCE MEETS SCIENCE FICTION

Awesome Con proudly dedicates a special area of our show floor to all things science! Celebrating sci-fi, technology, engineering, aerospace, astronomy, and much more, The Awesome Con Science Fair is not only tons of fun—it’s educational too!

A popular feature year after year, fans can explore how science influences their favorite comics, films, and TV shows, discover new technologies from scientific companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations, and learn about incredible career opportunities in science and tech that could allow them to become a real-life Tony Stark or Bruce Banner.

SCIENCE FAIR GUEST OF HONOR

ADAM SAVAGE (Appearing Friday – Sunday) Adam has spent his life gathering skills that allow him to take what’s in his brain and make it real. He’s built everything from ancient Buddhas and futuristic weapons to fine-art sculptures and dancing vegetables.

In 2002, Adam was chosen along with Jamie Hyneman to host MythBusters, which premiered on Discovery Channel in January 2003. Fourteen years, 1,015 myths, 2,950 experiments, eight Emmy nominations, and 83 miles of duct tape later, the series ended in March 2016.

Today, Adam stars in and produces content for Tested.com, including behind-the-scenes dives into multiple blockbuster films (including Ghost in the Shell, Alien Covenant, and Blade Runner). He also produces and stars in his “Brain Candy” stage show with Vsauce’s Michael Stevens.
