White House Egg Roll Celebrates Science

At the White House egg roll this Monday, guests were invited to participate in a collection of spring-themed science activities. Part of the administration's ongoing Educate to Innovate campaign, activities for the event were suggested by science providers from across the country. Of the selected activities, two were offered by Coalition members. The Lawrence Hall of Science ran a kite-making activity, giving a chance to learn about wind energy and flight, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) offered a “Science of Spring” activity section, allowing parents and children to dissect green been seeds, look at them under a microscope, take beans home to plant, and document their progress online. Congratulations to our members for their involvement in this great event!
