eGFI@: The USA Science & Engineering Festival

This past weekend (Oct. 23-24), some of the eGFI team were lucky enough to visit the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo on and near the National Mall of Washington, DC. Between giant kaleidoscopes, robot soccer competitions, Bill Nye the Science Guy, live music, explosions, and DIY rockets, there was more than enough to keep us occupied.

Check out some of our best photos from the festival below:

  1. the boy running in top of the liquid with cornstarch… is it really true to run without touching the bottom? and why does this happen?
