PRLog - Apr. 24, 2012 - OAKLAND, Calif. -- Science, Engineering and Mathematics Link Inc. (SEM Link) is among the many noted exhibitors and presenters to be featured at the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo hosted by Lockheed Martin, the nation's largest celebration of science and engineering, set for April 28-29, 2012 in Washington, DC.

The Festival Expo -- with its fascinating array of hands-on exhibits and stage shows, coupled with up-close interaction with renowned innovators, and top researchers and celebrities in science and engineering -- has rapidly evolved into a must-see event for families, students and others across the country and globe.

A free weekend event, the Expo, scheduled for the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, culminates a month-long series of Festival events taking place in April throughout the nation and in various foreign countries to encourage young students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

“We sincerely thank our Expo exhibitors, performers and other presenters for their valued role in the Expo’s mission to inspire the next generation of science and technology innovators,” said Larry Bock, Founder and Executive Director of the USA Science & Engineering Festival. “The Expo promises a fun and exciting weekend that allows kids, their families and others to participate in over 2,000 interactive exhibits and other activities, plus seeing more than 100 live performances by science celebrities, explorers, best-selling authors, innovative entrepreneurs and world-renowned experts,” he said.

SEM Link will   exhibit on the topic of “Linking Science to Everyday Materials”, we will  engage attendees in some pretty cool science experiments using everyday materials from grocery stores or discount stores. The exhibit can be seen on April 28 and 29 at Booth 2849 in the Washington Convention Center.

“SEM Link is proud to be joining other noted exhibitors and performers at the Festival Expo to help inspire and educate young minds through hands-on encounters in science and engineering -- all which help demystify technology for kids and motivate them in STEM professions,“ said Ms. Tokiwa T. Smith, Founder and Executive Director of SEM Link "
