Webs, Wires and Waves: National Science and Technology Week '97

January 1997

NSTW '97 will focus on communications and communications technologies in order to recognize the priceless impact that these areas have had in "shrinking" the world and bringing people closer together. The theme of NSTW '97 will be "Webs, Wires and Waves."

NSTW '97 will focus on communications and communications technologies in order to recognize the priceless impact that these areas have had in "shrinking" the world and bringing people closer together. The theme of NSTW '97 will be "Webs, Wires and Waves."

As with previous years, a major objective of NSTW '97--as well as all NSTW-related events throughout the year--is to enlighten children and adults about the importance of science and engineering through hands-on learning activities and events.

First held in 1985, NSTW is an informal science and engineering education outreach program of NSF. Since its inception, NSTW has gradually expanded in scope and impact, involving millions of Americans in national and local events.
