NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver spoke to the students at Luther Jackson Middle School in Falls Church, Va., on Tuesday, March 27. The event is part of the USA Science and Engineering Festival's Nifty Fifty (times 2) Program. The Nifty Fifty program sends more than 100 top scientists and engineers into Washington-area schools before the festival to inspire middle and high school students' passion for science and engineering. The festival will take place April 28-29 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center at 801 Mount Vernon Place NW in Washington. As the country's only national science festival, this venue increases public awareness about the importance of science and encourages youth to pursue careers in science and engineering. Includes b-roll and speech excerpts from Garver. For more info: www.nasa.gov and www.usasciencefestival.org
