Volunteer for Science, Engineering Festival, Apr. 16-17

NIH will have its own pavilion at the widely attended USA Science & Engineering Festival (USASEF) held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Apr. 16-17. 

The festival is the nation’s largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The free biennial event is open to children of all ages and their family and friends. The 2014 event attracted more than 325,000 people to its many hands-on activities, enticing visitors young and old to learn, create and explore the wonders—and excitement—of STEM. USASEF is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Apr. 16 and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Apr. 17. 

If you are an NIH staff member, you are also invited to volunteer at the NIH Pavilion, a vast anchor exhibit in the Health and Medicine Pavilion featuring activities organized by 19 institutes, centers and offices. This is a great opportunity for NIH employees to communicate their enthusiasm for science and technology to the public. For information on volunteering, visit
