USA Science & Engineering Festival is this weekend in D.C.!

I can’t begin to tell you everything that is wonderful and important about the 2nd annual USA Science and Engineering Festival, to be held April 28-29, 2012 in Washington, DC.

What I can tell you about this science expo and book fair:

  • It’s the largest event of its kind in the United States
  • It will feature appearances by science celebs Adam Savage & Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Mayim Bialik from the Big Bang Theory
  • There will be books & authors, including Carl Zimmer (Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed), Julie Chibbaro (Deadly), and many more
  • Science standup. Yes, comedy. And yes, it will be very, very funny
  • Meet the Scientist or Engineer, featuring some of America’s most engaging intellectuals
  • Solving Medical Mysteries by the Am. Soc. for Clinical Lab Science
  • The Science of Illusion by maestro Apollo Robbins
  • The Physics of Hollywood Movies by Adam Weiner
  • Meet & greet scientists from the past: Orville Wright, Marie Curie, George Washington Carver!
  • Adventures in Storm Chasing
  • …and 3,000 hands on science & engineering activities for all ages

Not convinced? Glance at this program listing and you will be.

I so wish I were within a few hundred miles of this event. Hope to make it next year. Would you all please go in my place? And be sure to take a kid with you as your contribution to developing the next generation of STEM leaders.
