The USA Science and Engineering Festival has its Expo next Saturday and Sunday in Washington, D.C. The schedule and map are available online, and I strongly encourage you to print them out and plan ahead. There’s just too much going on to take it all in. The big names in attendance include:
They Might Be Giants (two concerts)
Bill Nye The Science Guy
Well, those are the names you are most likely to recognize. Many of the other guests you might recognize on sight, or at least the organizations they work with. Scientists from several federal departments and research universities will be in attendance. Science advisers for major television programs, hosts of other science programs, extreme athletes, authors and musical entertainment. If you like science and engineering (and if you don’t, why are you here?) you should be able to find plenty here to fill your day, or even your weekend.
I’ll be there, wandering about, both days. If you’d like to meet, look for a fellow in a They Might Be Giants or Rap Guide to Evolution t-shirt.
