NCSE at USA Science & Engineering Festival


NCSE will be participating in the Science Expo of the USA Science & Engineering Festival, April 28 and 29, 2012, in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. The culmination of a month-long celebration of science and engineering, the Science Expo is a giant science party in America's capital city, aimed at inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. All events are free and open to the general public.

So come and explore the world of science and engineering with over three thousand interactive exhibits, over one hundred stage shows featuring science celebrities, magicians, jugglers, rappers, and more, and over thirty featured author presentations and book signing events. The two-day Expo is perfect for teens, children and their families, and anyone with a curious mind who is looking for a weekend of fun and discovery.

And NCSE will be there too, inviting the general public to "find yourself on the tree of life" — with displays featuring a panoramic view of the tree of life, the evolution of hominids, and the evolutionary path from dinosaurs to their avian descendants, as well as activities and NCSE buttons for kids. Look for NCSE's Charles Hargrove, Robert Luhn, and Eric Meikle running NCSE's display in Booth 338 in Hall C.

NCSE's booth is part of the "Evolution Thought Trail" — a series of exhibits at the Science Expo, sponsored by various scientific and science education organizations, including the American Museum of Natural History, the National Association of Biology Teachers, the National Science Teachers Association, and the Society for Developmental Biology, aimed at educating and entertaining the public about evolution.
