Scheduled for October, the USA Science & Engineering Festival will be a free educational event to get Americans excited about science and engineering! The festival will feature hands-on demonstrations, fun demos, and presentations including art, music, comedy, film, and theater.
Over 150 FREE events are planned throughout the month of October and more than 750 companies, universities, research labs, federal agencies, professional societies, community groups, and science outreach organizations will participate.
The largest of the events will occur on October 23-24 at the National Mall in Washington, DC (and surrou

You can learn about fun topics like the science of the magic of Harry Potter, the mathematics of jump roping, the physics of superheroes, the chemistry of Thanksgiving Dinner, the engineering of baseball bats and balls, the science behind special effects in movies, trends in global warming, renewable energy sources of the future, and much more.
