The 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival aims to re-invigorate the interest of our nation’s youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by presenting over 3000 hands-on science and engineering activities, over 100 stages shows and more than 30 Featured Authors. The Festival is a collaboration of over 500 of the nation’s leading science & engineering organizations, and is organized by Science Spark, a 501(c)3 non-profit science outreach organization. The Festival is the brainchild of Lockheed Martin’s CTO Ray O Johnson and serial entrepreneur Larry Bock. The USA Science & Engineering Festival is backed by a strong Advisory Board made up of Nobel Laureates, government and industry leaders, experienced educators and other thought leaders in science education. The Festival is funded through corporate sponsorships (led by our host sponsor Lockheed Martin), grants, and private donations.
