Our Festival Stories

Playtime Takes a Trip to the Science Fair

For most children, a day off school is exciting. It means games, outings, freedom to explore and play. But for the young people living at the DC General family shelter, staying home means something very different. Restricted to their family’s small room and unable to have friends over, being at school sounds a lot more fun than staying at the shelter.


Chevron, Proud Sponsor of Festival Expo

Chevron’s overall education strategy aims to inspire students to pursue science, technology, math and engineering (STEM). When we see the excitement on students’ faces at the Festival, we know we’re making a difference. Moments like these bring meaning to the work we do.


A Life Long Impact

I have attended the USA Science and Engineering Festivals with my son, Demetrius, since 2012. They have been amazing opportunities to be able to have quality hands-on STEM-related experiences in an exciting and fun way. We get to explore and learn in a chaotic environment with complete abandonment and freedom.


NIH Pavilion Features over 20 Hands-On Activities!

Our volunteers come back every year we participate because they love seeing first-hand, that special moment when a child’s interest sparks right in front of them—as they hear, “That was so cool!”
