USA Science And Engineering Fest Sets 2016 Dates

The fourth biennial USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo will take place April 15-17, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Lockheed Martin will return as its founding and presenting host. The Expo will feature expanded outreach activities to engage the nation's youth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), more than 3,000 hands-on exhibits and stage shows and over 1,000 participating organizations.

Future plans include year-round K-12 educational programming such as the X-STEM Symposium, the return of the popular 'Nifty Fifty' (times 4) Speakers, the Traveling Festival powered by Michigan Tech Mindtrekkers plus hundreds of satellite events and affiliate festivals around the world.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival is the country's only national science festival. More than one million people have attended the previous Festivals making it one of the largest scheduled events in Washington, D.C.

The Festival is a grassroots collaboration of more than 1,000 U.S. science and engineering corporations. It was developed to increase public awareness of the importance of science and to encourage youth to pursue careers in science and engineering by celebrating science in much the same way as Hollywood celebrities, professional athletes and pop stars are celebrated. The 2014 Festival attracted more than 325,000 attendees over three days.
