An Einstein Sighting at Brain Awareness Week!!


The USA Science and Engineering Festival pulls out the stops to get the word out about the festival! This time the Festival has recruited none other than...Albert Einstein to promote the festival at Brain Awareness Week at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. Einstein talked about exciting scientific principles and got students excited about the USA Science and Engineering Festival that is going to take place in Oct 2010.

About 800 students attended Brain Awareness Week activities at the National Museum of Health and Medicine over the course of the five-day program. Students were from public and private schools and even home schooled student schools in Maryland, DC and Virginia.

Responses to Einstein's visit:

"Absolutely loved Einstein. What a wonderful way to bring science and history alive. He is a keeper!"

"Loved Einstein. Excellent representation."

"Loved Einstein. Very effective."

Einstein was "Awesome. I think the students were able to retain more because they spoke to him."

Thank you so much for making it possible for Einstein to participate in Brain Awareness Week at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. He certainly set the stage for a brain-focused interactive learning experience.

Albert Einstein, Speaks to Indians:
"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."
