With the 2014 USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo fast approaching and over 300 Organizations signed up to date, it's time to begin thinking about the phenomenal, hands-on exhibit that you'll create for this high-profile event to give students, teachers and others an unforgettable journey into the frontiers of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).
Already, exhibitors from a wide range of STEM institutions and professions are signing up for the Finale Expo set for Saturday, April 26 through Sunday, April 27, 2014 at the Convention Center in Washington, DC -- so don't miss the opportunity to also have your research institution, association or K-12 school science organization included during this national high-visibility weekend in science discovery!
The Expo will give more than 750 STEM organizations from all over the United States the opportunity to present hands-on, fun and educational science activities to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Sign up to reserve your exhibition booth space today -- including getting a discount on your exhibit registration fee if you refer a new organization to us who signs up to exhibit!
We are looking for exhibits that use creative, interactive ways to engage young students and others in the wonders of science, engineering and other STEM research areas and careers. Advantages of becoming an exhibitor include: performing exciting, motivating public outreach to a national and international audience at the Expo; free advertising for your organization as a Partner of the Festival, and invitations to attend behind-the-scenes VIP Expo events.
