Over the October 23-24 weekend, NIH brought its science to the streets at the inaugural USA Science and Engineering Festival Expo in Washington, D.C. Thousands of people enjoyed the hands-on activities at the NIH tent on the National Mall and the NIH exhibit booths on Freedom Plaza. Activities included a brain-based game show (upper left), a discovery zone of human anatomy (lower right), a meet and greet with prominent scientists like Dr Nora Volkow (lower left), and an opportunity to learn more about your eyes (upper right). Thanks to NIH photographer Maggie Bartlett for the snaps.
During its two-day run, 500,000 people visited the Expo. Festival planners hint that we may see version 2.0 in 2012.
