Appearances By Science Celebrities, Performers and Entrepreneurs Will Take “Star Gazing” to Another Level During the USA Science & Engineering Festival on April 28-29, 2012
The stars will be out in full force at the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival – the nation’s largest celebration of science and engineering.
Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman – hosts of the Discovery Channel’s hit TV series MythBusters – are scheduled to perform at the Festival. During their performance, Adam and Jamie will talk about their favorite myths in the world of science, technology, movies, the Internet, history, news stories and other topics they’ve tested on the show. Festival favorite, Bill Nye the Science Guy, will demonstrate the Passion, Beauty and Joy – or, as he calls it, the P.B. and J. – of Science by talking about our planet’s place in the cosmos. Mayim Bialik, the talented actress-scientist who plays the brainy Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS TV hit comedy The Big Bang Theory will also bring a unique perspective to the Festival, sharing her experiences and accomplishments with children to inspire them to reach their potential and get excited about science and STEM fields.
The Festival will also feature appearances from several science entrepreneurs, veritable rock stars in the business world, including:
- Elon Musk – co-founder of PayPal, SpaceX – a company recently contracted by NASA to deliver cargo to and from the International Space Station and Tesla
- Richard Garriott – renowned video game developer and the sixth private citizen to travel to space as a self-funded tourist
- George Whitesides – President and CEO of Virgin Galactic – the pioneering U.S.-based space tourism company
- Anousheh Ansari – the first female space explorer and the first astronaut of Iranian descent and the fourth private citizen to visit space. Click Here
