It is not only important, it is arguably our duty as a world-leading health organization to not
only set standards and execute on operational requirements, but to generate awareness, educate the public,
and drive the next generation of scientists and leaders. Supporting grassroots and formal educational avenues
will generate critical long-term returns.

National Institutes of Health, Festival Sponsor

As the largest celebration of science and engineering in the United States, the Festival is committed to building the nation’s largest network of individuals, institutions, corporations and organizations with a similar focus, resulting in increased collaboration between the scientific and educational communities. We admire the Festival’s commitment to creating strong and collaborative partnerships, and we’re proud to be a part of that mission. The USA Science and Engineering Festival is a tremendous partner in working to achieve mutual goals.

Chevron, Festival Sponsor

The Lockheed Martin scanning electron microscope with the nanotechnology was absolutely amazing. I had never even known about nanotechnology before and the volunteer there told me how nanotechnology worked and explained what kind of background I would need to get a career in the field. And the scanning electron microscope was very educational. The student at Penn State gave me information on everything I should know. I can't even express how thankful I am to him. I absolutely loved being able to use a piece of equipment I wouldn't normally be able to get my hands on!
