    Next year, I am SO there! This year the best I can do is post & blog in support of the Festival. Anybody living with a child within a hundred miles of Washington DC should attend and nurture the next generation of STEM leaders.

    I’m volunteering for the SETI Institute Sunday morning (helping to man the Kepler exhibit) and the Planetary Society Sunday afternoon. I just hope I have time to see the rest of what’s going on.
