This past weekend, the Chandra team had a great time at the USA Science & Engineering Festival. From nearly the start of the day on Saturday through the end of Sunday, there was a steady stream of people stopping by. Those who did attend had to deal with street closures from road races, as well the regular DC activity around the National Mall. Everyone was rewarded, however, with some fabulous autumn weather – sunny and dry.

Most of the kids who came to the Chandra booth took part in our activity that let them “build” their own their own Universe out of dark matter and dark energy (black marbles) and normal matter (colored marbles.) Others were able to learn more about Chandra – and many other topics in astrophysics -- from our resident experts for the weekend. Thanks to the Festival organizers for making the weekend such a success.

awesome event

I like this type of events and it really gives an outstanding idea that is very helpful for all Science & Engineering students.

Looks like fun!

This looks like it was a great time. Would love to see more pictures and hear more about it.
Thank you

the USA Science and Engineering festival was a hughe success thank you for everyone that came and participated. We had a really fun time and there were a lot of avid listeners to engage and interact with our community of science and engineering leaders. We are humble to congradulate Prof. PhD Hartford Glately for his take on nuclear physics and atominology. Thanks again to all that came and made this a wonderful experience, all the faculty that helped set this up and make everything run smooth and with grace. Thanks again to all my faculty team
