Sponsor Highlight 

National Institutes of Health Shares Their Festival Experience! The NIH Pavilion is filled every year with a diverse crowd of young and old. Our wide range of activities brings smiles to the faces of all who delight in trying them. Watching a parent on their knee helping a young child as they complete an activity or ask a question is a wonderful opportunity to observe the “love of learning” and enjoyment of science live and in-person. Knowing that thousands of impressions just like this are being made every minute, and seeing them first-hand, defines our success.
