The 5th USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo was held on April 7- 8, 2018 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Over 3,000 exhibitors from professional societies, universities, government agencies, tech companies, defense industries, and STEM organizations were present at "See Where STEM Can Take You."
The USNA STEM Center, in collaboration with the Office of Naval Research and DoD STEM, was a partner and exhibitor for the two day event, hosting a booth for visitors to participate in a wide range of hands-on STEM activities. Many dignitaries attended, including the Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, pictured here with some of the midshipmen manning the booth.
