The Fourth USA Science and Engineering Festival starts a year from today. While booking of acts continues, ‘Science Bob’ Pflugfelder is already scheduled to appear. If you can’t wait a full year, there are at least a couple of ways to engage with the Festival before then.
There is the Traveling Festival. It will make its next appearance later this month at the FIRST Robotics Championships in St. Louis. Michigan Tech’s Mind Trekkers are operating the festival, which will tour around the country leading up to next year’s Festival.
Later this month is the X-STEM Symposium. The second annual symposium will take place April 28 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. (the same location as the Festival). Targeted at middle school and high school students, the symposium is a combination of presentations, hands-on demonstrations and demonstrations from experts in a number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. If you want to go and haven’t registered, April 17th is the last day.
