FABBS Foundation to Participate in "Science on the Mall"
Playing video games, driving a car, flying a plane – how do the limits of the mind interfere with peak performance?
With assistance from graduate students at George Mason University’s Human Factors and Applied Cognition Program, the Foundation’s booth will be geared toward pre-teens and teens and offer fun and interactive demos to show participants how they can reduce errors and improve performance.
In all, there will be more than 1,500 hands-on science activities and up to 75 stage shows and performances at the Expo, a free event aimed at inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The Expo is scheduled for October 23-24, 2010, on the National Mall. It culminates the two-week Festival, hosted by Lockheed Martin and in collaboration with more than 500 of the nation’s leading science organizations.
The FABBS Foundation’s booth can be found in Section NM-6, between 4th and 7th Streets, NW.
