USA Science and Engineering Festival
Eight Sandians took part in the USA Science and Engineering Festival on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Oct. 23-24, 2010. Thousands of youth (ages ranging from toddlers to teenagers) assembled on the mall to interact with scientists and engineers from across the country. The festival's mission was to reinvigorate the interest of our nation's youth in science, technology, engineering, and math. The visitors got to see and touch some of the Sandia technologies that are helping keep their world peaceful and free, and the Sandians got a first-hand reminder of why the Labs' work is important.
