Celebrating science and engineering in Washington

Last month Fermilab participated in the USA Science and Engineering Festival, the largest STEM education event of its kind in the United States. More than 750 organizations participated in the Washington, DC, festival. Here, kids at the Fermilab booth play Rolling for Rutherford. Photo: Marge Bardeen, WDRS

Eleven-year-old Gabe from Florida visited Fermilab's booth. His family took the train 16 hours to attend the fair because he saw Fermilab was going to be there. Fascinated by particles since he was eight, he wore his Higgs shirt to the event. The Fermilab Education Office gave him a Fermilab t-shirt and invited him to help out in the booth. He was thrilled to represent Fermilab. Photo: Marge Bardeen, WDRS
