Join the First National Celebration of Science and Engineering by Hosting a Satellite Event in Your City

WASHINGTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 7, 2010 — Organizers of the first USA Science & Engineering Festival ( are calling on universities, museums, science centers, businesses, schools and other community –based organizations across the country, to join us in a national celebration of science from October 10-24, 2010.

The goal is to have every state participate with at least one satellite event, held during the USA Science and Engineering Festival. Time is running out to be part of the biggest and most fun science and engineering event this nation has ever seen.

What does it take to hold a satellite event? Find a champion and insert a large dose of creative spark. Check out the 25 USA Science & Engineering Festival satellite events that are in progress, including science open houses and cafes, research weekends, and even a Mom’s Night Out celebrating a mother’s role in encouraging her kids towards these fields.

To bring the regional and national events together, everyone is invited to play an interactive word game answering questions about science and engineering. As the game unfolds, it will be featured live on the National Mall.
