First ever USA Science and Engineering Festival – Fall 2010!

This is so cool – Next fall, from October 10-24th, the Inaugural USA Science & Engineering Festival, the US’s first national science festival, will be held in the Washington, DC area. The culmination of the Festival will be a 2-day (October 23rd and 24th) Expo on the National Mall. From the Festival website – “The Festival promises to be the ultimate multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-disciplinary celebration of science in the United States. The culmination of the Festival will be a two-day Expo in the nation’s capital that will give over 500 science & engineering organizations from all over the United States the opportunity to present themselves with a hands-on, fun science activity to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.”

Already, over 200 organizations have signed up to participate, by hosting an exhibit, becoming a Festival partner, organizing a Satellite event in their own community, making donations, and other sponsoring activities. People can also volunteer to help out with the Festival, and there’s a signup form available here. I know we’re going to try to make it to the Festival, and if you’re here in the US and can get to DC, you should mark your calendars too!
