Supporting Inaugural USA Science and Engineering Festival

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC



Madam Speaker, I rise in support of H. Res. 1660, and I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Madam Speaker, I, of course, rise in support of H. Res. 1660, supporting the goals and ideals of the USA Science and Engineering Festival taking place on the National Mall and at satellite events around the country.

This inaugural national event on October 23 and 24 is intended to celebrate science and raise awareness of the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math education in the United States. STEM education is a crucial component to our Nation's growth and well-being. Advances in the science and engineering fields not only have made our lives significantly better but also have had a global impact as well.

The USA Science and Engineering Festival will have over 1,500 free hands-on activities and shows for all ages featuring some of the most talented and experienced specialists in the science and engineering fields. This festival aims to reinvigorate the interests of our Nation's youth in STEM by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational, and entertaining science gatherings in the United States.

Inspiring our children to become more interested in

the STEM fields and in careers through endeavors such as this is the key to unlocking our future economic and innovative potential and success. Over 100 members of Congress have joined to support the efforts of this festival in a bipartisan fashion.

I am pleased to support the USA Science and Engineering Festival, and I encourage my colleagues to join me in this support.

At this time I yield such time as he may consume to the gentleman from California (Mr. Bilbray).
