ReSET at the USA Festival
ReSET was one of over 500 organizations that participated in the USA Science and Engineering Festival on the National Mall this past weekend (10/23-10/24/10). Hundreds of children visited the ReSET booth to try science experiments, as did many former-children. A number of the scientists and engineers who visited expressed interest in learning more about volunteering. Many thanks to ReSET volunteers Ji Chen, Bob Blumberg, Rich Repplier, Bob Hauptman, Bob Stern, Eva Jacobs, and Felton Rogers who attended and helped out. Bob Blumberg's experiment demonstrating air pressure with an upended cup of water was a big hit. Ji and Eva spent hours helping future scientists and engineers use batteries and electrical wire to light up a flashlight bulb.
