Ten NSCL faculty and staff traveled to Washington DC last weekend for the second USA Science and Engineering Festival. After having phenomenal success at the first such Festival, the lab returned with more helpers and double the booth space to serve the large crowds. Thousands of people came by to try their hand at fragmenting marble “nuclei” and to learn the importance of rare isotope research. Dozens of visitors also inquired about graduate, undergraduate, and outreach programs at NSCL. Many thanks to those who spent their weekend bringing nuclear science to the public: Artemis Spyrou, Irina Sagert, Scott Bustabad, Kortney Cooper, John Novak, Chris Prokop, Jenna Smith, Sophia Vinnikova and Kurt Wiebold.
