The Nation's largest celebration of science and engineering, the USA Science & Engineering Festival, is returning to Washington, D.C., April 28-29, 2012. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, hosts of the Discovery Channel's hit TV series MythBusters, and Bill Nye the Science Guy are among the science superstars signed up to join the Festival Expo at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and other key locations in the greater District of Columbia area. The 2012 Festival will include a new book fair and career pavilion as part of the Finale Expo.
The USA Science & Engineering Festival, hosted by Lockheed Martin, is focused on encouraging the next generation of engineers, scientists, and technologists, and to increase public awareness of the importance of science and math education.
“Lockheed Martin is proud to again be the presenting host of the USA Science & Engineering Festival,” says Dr. Ray O Johnson, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Lockheed Martin Corporation and Festival co-creator. “As a Nation, we must recognize the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math education for our security and economic strength. Student success depends on cooperation and collaboration of industry, educators, policy makers and families."
