We were proud to be an Official Partner of the inaugural USA Science & Engineering Festival, held in the greater Washington DC area in October 2010. The culmination of the Festival, which is aimed to reignite the interest of our nation's youth in the sciences, was a two-day Expo on the National Mall on October 23-24, 2010 providing hundreds of fun hands-on activities for all ages exploring all facets of science & engineering.
