USA Science Engineering Festival

MIT SWE Outreach is proud to be an Official Partner of the 3rd USA Science Engineering Festival, to be held April 24-27, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
We will be making circuits that squish! Make a building, a dog, or a monster that lights up and makes noise! The possibilities for creative engineering are endless when you build a sculpture that conducts electricity.

USASEF Info
What is the universe made of? Why did dinosaurs go extinct? What do magic tricks and hip-hop have to with math? What will be the next medical breakthrough? What does baseball have to do with physics? Find out at the 3rd USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo where over 250,000 K-12 students and parents, over 5,000 teachers and over 3,000 STEM professionals will experience the largest celebration of STEM!

Participants include more than 750 of the World's leading professional scientific and engineering societies, universities, government agencies, high tech corporations and STEM outreach and community organizations.

The two-day Expo is perfect for teens, children and their families, and anyone with a curious mind who is looking for a weekend of fun and discovery. Meet science celebrities like Mike Rowe, host of the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Job series, Bill Nye the Science Guy, David Pogue, host of NOVA ScienceNow series on PBS, and Grammy Award-winning alternative music band "They Might Be Giants!"
