Science Buddies to Exhibit Science Fair Projects of Future at Wired NextFest in LA

SAN FRANCISCO, CA | Posted on September 13th, 2007

Science Buddies today announced that it will be exhibiting at WIRED NextFest™, a unique world's-fair-style event to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, September 13-16, 2007. Science Buddies will provide a glimpse into the future of education by showing off some of the most futuristic science project ideas from its online library at www.sciencebuddies.org. Visitors to the Science Buddies exhibit will be introduced to Science Buddies' extensive collection of helpful resources for student investigators, including these Project Ideas in topic areas such as nanotechnology, conservation, alternative energy, and climate change:

Programming NANORGs in a Virtual World
Free Lunch? Can Solar Energy Systems Pay for Themselves with Utility Bill Savings?
Harmful Algal Blooms in the Chesapeake Bay
Using Weather Balloon Data to Map Atmospheric Temperature
How Much Can Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

We shouldn't underestimate the talent and creativity of young people to contribute to solving some of the modern world's biggest challenges. Sometimes student science fair projects are the foundation of major discoveries or inventions. In fact, among the 1,500 high school students who participated in the 2007 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, more than 20% had already received or applied for a patent for their work. Science Buddies will be at NextFest hoping to meet and help inspire the next generation of young scientists and engineers.

Science Buddies will be in the Future of Education pavilion as a guest of the Northrop Grumman Foundation, a major sponsor of NextFest. NextFest will feature more than 160 exciting interactive exhibits of the innovative products and technologies that are transforming our world. Over the past three years, more than 100,000 visitors have visited WIRED NextFest in San Francisco (2004), Chicago (2005) and New York (2006).
