Festival Dates Announced: Expo on the Mall:
10/10/10 - 10/24/10 10/23 & 10/24
Yes, the Festival will kick off on 10/10/10 and, after two weeks of events throughout the greater Washington D.C. area, will culminate in two full days of discovery and exploration on the National Mall.
We will be right in front of the Capitol, between the Capitol Reflecting Pond and 7th Street, and we hope to be able to add the West Lawn to accommodate more exhibitors.
***ATTENTION EXHIBITORS - READ THIS***
If you have already signed up to exhibit, you will be surprised (and hopefully delighted) to hear that the Expo is now a two-day event! Due to an overwhelming number of requests from our exhibitors and partners, we have decided that two days is the way to go: more time to explore, more time to inspire, more people to reach, more bang for you buck!
Since you are already creating the exhibit, we wanted to give you more time to share it with the public. Set up will take place on Thursday the 21st,
Friday the 22nd, or the morning of Saturday the 23rd. And tear-down will be the evening of Sunday
the 24th or morning of Monday the 25th (depending on the complexity of your
exhibit set-up). We will be in touch with you soon to explain logistics.

goal is to spark hundreds of Satellite Events throughout the country, anchored
to the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C.
You can make it as small or as
large as you like: it
can be a single activity put on by your student club, a small celebration at
your school or company, a larger event that involves organizations from your
community, or a full- fledged Festival modeled after the USA Science &
