Carnegie partners with USA Science & Engineering Festival for second year
Date:10/3/2011

WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The world's largest celebration of science and engineering, the USA Science & Engineering Festival, will return to Washington, D.C., April 28-29, 2012. For the second year, the Carnegie Institution for Science will participate with hands-on experiments. At Carnegie's booth last year, visitors prospected for microscopic diamonds, saw a real diamond produced by our high pressure lab, touched the universe through handling a meteorite, constructed a spectroscope to use at home, examined fossils that are more than a billion years old, and met the very scientists who work with these amazing items.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival, hosted by Lockheed Martin, aims to inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists and technologists, and to increase public awareness of the importance of science and math education. The highly successful inaugural festival, the Nation's first and only national science festival, included nearly one million participants in the month-long celebration. The culmination was a two-day expo on the National Mall in October 2010, which included over 2,000 hands-on activities and 100 live performances, made possible by more than 500 scientific organizations.

Among the science superstars are Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, hosts of the Discovery Channel's hit TV series MythBusters, and Bill Nye the Science Guy. The 2012 Festival will include a new book fair and career pavilion.

"Carnegie scientists often are far away exploring or spending many hours in the lab building new tools or making amazing discoveries," Carnegie organizer Toby Horn remarked. "This is a great opportunity for the public to meet a real scientist and share in the wonder."

"The 2012 USA Science & Engineering Festival is already shaping up to be much larger than our inaugural event," said high-tech entrepreneur Larry Bock, executive director and festival co-creator. "With nearly eight months before our finale
