Abstract:

This report is the first independent evaluation of DoDs participation in the USA Science and Engineering Festival held in Washington, DC, on April 68, 2018. By observing the movement of attendees through the DoD area, the authors determined that DoDs participation in future STEM festivals could be more effective by 1 creating a map of the DoD area with more detail and descriptions than the festival map and handing the map out to attendees 2 providing distractors e.g., presenters, informational displays, entertainment or alternative tasks for those in line to make the passage of time seem faster 3 posting of times for talks and events and 4 conducting future evaluations so that each iteration of the DoD area can be improved.
