The second annual USA Science and Engineering Festival is fast approaching and people are starting to take notice of what a great resource the Festival organization has become. The mission of the Festival is to re-invigorate the interest of our nation's youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational and entertaining science gatherings in the United States. We are absolutely thrilled to have ranked as one of the 50 Essential Twitter Feeds for STEM Educators by Best Colleges Online!
Throughout the year, we at the Festival make it our priority to serve as a multi-faced source of information to promote awareness of STEM for our next generation. And we are active in doing so not only with the Festival itself in April and our many global satellite events, but we also provide a variety of great online resources that reach thousands daily. This includes the monthly newsletters to our readers as well as a special newsletter focused primarily on those in the field of education. Our online blog and website features a broad range of articles in the field of science. Plus, we reach a daily audience of over 3,500 plus on Facebook. Yet, our most visible source of information comes from our interesting facts and tidbits about science, our sponsors and the Festival posted daily on Twitter. With 4,260 twitter fans reading and retweeting our nearly 10,000 posted tweets, our goal of reaching an extensive audience to promote STEM has been quite a success!
So be sure to "follow" us on twitter and take advantage of doing your part to further the growth of STEM in the United States! Take a look at the many other great organizations that rank as the 50 Essential Twitter Feeds for STEM Educators.
