NIMBioS in DC Today at USA Science & Engineering Festival

NIMBioS is excited to join representatives from UT’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology today at the country’s largest national science festival. The aim of the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival is to increase the public’s awareness of the importance of science and to encourage youth to pursue careers in science and engineering. NIMBioS and EEB are joining forces to present two booths featuring ecology and mathematics — one focuses on plants and the importance of variation in nature, and the other focuses on the role of mushrooms in forests. The fair, held at the Washington D.C. Convention Center, is a month-long celebration, culminating in a two-day exposition including 100 live performances and 3,000 different hands-on activities by more than 500 of the nation’s leading science and engineering organizations. The event is free and open to the public. When NIMBioS returns, we will post photos. Watch this space!
