It's science, it's engineering, it's a festival

Yes it's the first ever US Science and Engineering Festival and it's on now. If' you're in the DC area head on down. It's free, it's fun and it's on the National Mall between 1st and 7th Streets; Freedom Plaza, Pennsylvania Ave. NW between 12th and 14th Streets; Woodrow Wilson Plaza, Mellon Auditorium, National Museum of Natural History.

I was going to say, sadly I won't be there-- but it's not sadly I'm in New Orleans speaking with the AAMC GREAT group (and they are great!) about faculty diversity and oh yes listening to the Uptown Jazz Orchestra and Leon "Kid Chocolate" Brown.
