USA Science

Last month I volunteered to take part in the USA Science and Engineering Festival Expo in our nation's capital, Washington D.C.! There were all kinds of exhibits hosted by agencies, professional science organizations, and businesses like NASA, the American Society for Microbiology, and Lockheed Martin.

Our mission is to re-invigorate the interest of our nation’s youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational and entertaining science gatherings in the United States.

If the powers that be decide to throw this festival a second time, it would be great to have a representation of the country's leading lichenological, bryological, and mycological societies. I'll keep an eye on future plans!
