And just a refresher- the mission of the USA Science and Engineering 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 festival in the United States.
Thank you for helping us to achieve our mission!
It is a shame that the Expo is the same weekend as the National Science Bowl, a national competition for high school science students sponsored by the US Dept of Energy. I'm sure DOE would have considered being a sponsor of this event. As a long-time volunteer at the science bowl, I would have liked to volunteer for the expo but I thought it would be held in the Fall. Next time one of these is planned, please consider consulting with major science and engineering organizations to see whether there is a competing event.
Thanks for your message. The Science Bowl students will actually be attending our "Sneak Peek Friday" on the 27th. Here is a link with some more information: http://www.usasciencefestival.org/2012festival/schoolprograms/attend-sn…
