Researchers from the Center for Selective C-H Functionalization, participating in a stage show at the 2014 USA Science and Engineering Festival, amazed audiences with oozing catalytic chaos. In addition to participating in the show, the center also had an exhibit, "Redefining Chemical Logic: Teaching Old Bonds New Tricks," at the festival. The show was one of NSF's exhibits and stage shows at the festival that took place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., on April 25-27. NSF was a partner in the festival, the nations largest celebration of science and engineering, where visitors eagerly engaged in hands-on activities and were amazed by the breadth of research and education projects supported by the agency. The festival expo provides an opportunity for NSF to showcase the innovation the agency supports throughout the U.S. and the projects and programs selected to represent NSF benefit from the opportunity to demonstrate the value of their activities and outcomes to a large national audience. The goal of the festival is to reinvigorate the interest of the nations youth in science, technology, engineering and math by presenting these areas in an exciting, compelling, educational and entertaining manner. Now in its third year, the festival attracted an estimated 320,000 attendees. (Date of Image: 2014) Credit: Susan Pell, National Science Foundation
