No question about it: In the Festival's mission to present exciting hands-on experiences in science to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, we can never overlook the importance that Exhibitors and their creative, interactive STEM exhibit displays have on impacting the future direction of our primary audience: K-12 students!
STEM organizations and institutions can again help us make the next Festival Expo exhibit experience -- set for April 16-17, 2016 in Washington, D.C. -- even greater for students and other attendees by being an "Early Bird" to sign up as a new or returning Exhibitor. And in doing so, you'll receive a significant discount on your booth and exhibit space! (See below for more details.) Attention: We reached over 200 organizations and since the demand to join the Festival is so high- we are extending this offer to the next 100 organizations!
The Festival Expo is known as the largest celebration of STEM in the country, and the 2016 event is expected to our biggest "Super Bowl of STEM" gathering ever, giving Exhibitors an excellent opportunity to showcase their institutions to more than 325,000 visitors from around the world --and to inspire and wow multitudes of future STEM innovators!
If you don't think Festival exhibits make a difference, check out our testimonial page to read comments from students, parents and other attendees, such as:
-Clare Mapes, Student
"The Lockheed Martin scanning electron microscope with the nanotechnology was absolutely amazing. I had never even known about nanotechnology before and the volunteer there told me how nanotechnology worked and explained what kind of background I would need to get a career in the field. And... the student at Penn State gave me information on everything I should know. I can't even express how thankful I am to him..."
-Jennifer Leon McReynolds, Parent
"First time attending this event. Definitely not the last. My son LOVED ROBOT FEST!! Thank you all so much for making this happen. Our future depends on events like these. I wanted my son to see what the world of science and Engineering [has to offer] and the USA Science & Engineering Festival really did deliver just that!!"
