USA Science and Engineering Festival
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
April 26 & 27, 2014
Free of charge!
The USA Science and Engineering Festival is the largest celebration of STEM in the nation and will feature over 3,000 hands-on activities, 150 stage shows (with science celebrities like Bill Nye, Dr. Michio Kaku, Danica McKellar), a Book Fair, Career/College Fair, a family concert with They Might Be Giants and much more.
The Festival is FREE and open to the public event and will take place this coming weekend (4/26-4/27) at the Washington DC Convention Center. There is also a "Sneak Peek Friday" for schools, homeschoolers and military families on the 25th. There is still time to register for this.
We attended the Festival in 2012, and it was amazing. Please note that the festival is very, very large. There is no way that a person could see everything. It is best to be organized and plan ahead of time. There are more than 3000 fun, hands-on activities for all ages, and you can create your personal list of must-see exhibits here. Plus, the Festival boasts over 150 stage shows, including music, magic, comedy and more (create your personal Stage Show Schedule here). High school students can check out the Career Pavilion and College Fair, and everyone will also love the book fair with twenty-five featured authors.
The Festival is appropriate for people of all ages- from toddlers to grandparents. There is something for all curious minds to learn and discover. We highly recommend this amazing event!
