Why Be a Sponsor?
Increase your visibility
Nationally and internationally, Science Festivals have shown that large and enthusiastic crowds—numbering in the tens of thousands—will turn out for science. The MSU Science Festival is an opportunity to be part of a high-profile and well-advertised world-class campaign. Your name will be associated with an innovative program that fosters our community's leading role in science and technology, workforce development, and a collaborative business climate.
Partner on a grand scale
Join with the National Science Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science to promote the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education that is at the heart of a Science Festival. The MSU Science Festival presents a unique opportunity to showcase the vast resources of the University's programs, partnerships, and dedication to research and education that is relevant to communities and everyday lives.
Recruit the next generation
Many festival attendees report never having had a substantive interaction with a science professional before. Research has shown that festivals move many attendees to become more interested in science and seek out more science-related activities, and confirms that this result includes hard-to-reach audiences such as low-income families and adults between the ages of 18 and 35. And once their interest is caught, the University offers a full year-round spectrum of science, art, music, theater and sporting events to help it thrive.
Science opens doors to the future
By supporting the Science Festival you can help make these doors accessible to everyone.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor of the 2016 MSU Science Festival!
