“Celebration of Science” event will take place at Nysmith School, Herndon, VA on .
This is an event that brings together all THINKERS, MAKERS, DREAMERS, and DOERS where they can share/learn and inspire each other in the fields of science, technology and engineering. Last year was immensely successful with hundreds of people participating and benefitting from this event. It is a great opportunity for kids from K-12 to showcase their FLL/FTC robots, outreach and interact with other coaches, mentors and experts in the field. They have some great keynotes planned.
