USA Science & Engineering Festival 2014

Join the National Eye Institute (NEI) at the USA Science & Engineering Festival, the largest celebration of STEM in the nation! The festival will be held on April 26-27, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

This will be the 3rd USA Science & Engineering Festival—a fun, entertaining, educational and FREE event.

Why have a science festival? Society gets what it celebrates! As a culture, we celebrate actors, pop stars and athletes and we generate a lot of them … but we do not celebrate science and engineering?

This event is analogous to an art, music or food festival, but it is focused on science and engineering. There will be over 3,000 hands-on activities and over 150 stage shows. And— while having fun—participants can leave with info about scholarships, internships, jobs and more.
