The Geophsyical Laboratory presented various topics at the third annual USA Science & Engineering Festival, the largest science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education event of its kind in the United States!

The festival kicked off in 2013 with nationwide school programs, contests and events year-round, and culminated in a two-day Grand Finale Expo on April 26-27, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. More than 750 leading STEM organizations presented hands-on science and engineering activities for people of all ages.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival is a national grassroots effort to advance STEM education and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.  The exhibitors, performers, speakers, partners, sponsors and advisors are a who-is-who of science and engineering in the United States: from major academic centers and leading research institutes and government agencies to cutting-edge high tech companies, museums and community organizations.
