The Chandra X-ray Center is proud to be an Official Partner of the inaugural USA Science & Engineering Festival to be held in the greater Washington DC area in October 2010. The Festival, which will be the countryâ€™s first national science festival, is a collaboration of over 500 of the country's leading science and engineering organizations and aims to reignite the interest of our nationâ€™s youth in the sciences. The culmination of the Festival will be a two-day Expo on the National Mall on October 23-24, 2010, which will give children, teens and adults the opportunity to explore all facets of science & engineering through hundreds of fun, hands-on activities. People across the Unites States are encouraged to hold Satellite Events in their communities the same weekend that hundreds of thousands of people celebrate science on the National Mall For more information on all Festival events and how you can get involved, visit www.usasciencefestival.org.
