Engineering to solve real-world problems at the USA Science and Engineering Festival


The Mobile Area Education Foundation is designing lessons to teach kids that engineering and math can solve real-world problems...like designing ways to catch blood clots in a model human circulatory system. The USA Science and Engineering Festival, held April 25-27, 2014, in Washington, DC, attracted more than 320,000 attendees. NSF was a big presence with 23 exhibits and 24 stage shows showcasing NSF-funded research.
