Automation at science & engineering event

The Automation Federation and the International Society of Automation (ISA) is to exhibit at the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival (28–29 April 2012 in Washington, D.C.,USA). The festival is a celebration of science and engineering and will feature more than 1500 hands-on activities and more than 75 performances.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival is America's largest national science festival. It was developed to increase public awareness of the importance of science and to encourage youth to pursue careers in science and engineering by celebrating science the same way people celebrate Hollywood celebrities, professional athletes and pop stars.

“AF and ISA have chosen to exhibit at the festival because we are committed to promoting science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM) to youth and to building the next generation of automation professionals," said Mike Marlowe, Automation Federation managing director. “Careers in automation are exiting, rewarding and important to our future, ” he added. “Through our exhibition, AF and ISA aspire to increase awareness of the importance of automation and engineering among young people and to invite them to explore the fascinating career paths in automation.”
