USA Science and Engineering Festival: The Blog

Thanks National Center for Science Education for this post and helping get the word out about the Festival! Thanks for having a booth at the festival too.

NCSE will be participating in the Science Expo of the USA Science & Engineering Festival, October 23 and 24, 2010, on the National Mall in Washington DC. The culmination of a two-week celebration of science and engineering, the Science Expo is a giant science party on America’s front lawn, aimed at inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. All events are free and open to the general public.

So come and explore the world of science and engineering with over 1500 free hands-on activities from over 750 science and engineering organizations, and over 75 stage shows featuring science celebrities, magicians, jugglers, rappers, and more. The two-day Expo is perfect for teens, children and their families, and anyone with a curious mind who is looking for a weekend of fun and discovery.

And NCSE will be there too, inviting the general public to “find yourself on the tree of life” — with displays featuring a panoramic view of the tree of life, the evolution of hominids, and the evolutionary path from dinosaurs to their avian descendants, as well as activities and NCSE buttons for kids. Look for NCSE’s display in Booth 1420 at Freedom Plaza (Pennsylvania Avenue North at 13th Street).
