Announcement PF is sponsoring the 2014 WI Science Festival

  1. Aug 11, 2014 #1
    Physics Forums is proud to announce that this year we are a sponsor for the Wisconsin Science Festival! The fest runs from October 16 – 19, 2014.

    The festival is headquartered in Madison, WI but they have satellite events all over the state. Check the website for information http://www.wisconsinsciencefest.org/wsf-about.php [Broken]

    I'll be posting weekly news and information leading up to the festival. During the festival I'll be there tweeting all the interesting things I find out. If you are in the midwest this would be a great chance to meet up!

    Thanks for the update. I'm planning on dropping in on a couple of friends in Des Moines on the way. I'll probably spend the night and arrive there early the next afternoon. I'm flexible on the dates.

    PF is getting a booth! I'll be there 9am-2pm on the 16th, 17th and 18th handing out PF goodies, spreading the good word and showing off the new PF 4.0! If you're in the area come on out and we can have a chat! I'd love to meet some PF Members!
