Hundreds of future astronauts, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers turned out Oct. 17 at The Watergate at Landmark with social distancing measures in place. They gathered for the fourth annual Spooky Mad Science Expo, an event to combine Halloween and science learning projects.
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The Expo is the brainchild of Watergate resident Zohreh Khoshnamak, who founded the community’s Science Club. The event was held with the participation of volunteers from organizations including the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, National Science Foundation, National Society of Black Engineers, American Chemical Society, American Statistical Association, and the American Institute of Architects.”
As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The Expo is a volunteer-based event and serves the families at The Watergate at Landmark, which has around 4,000 residents. “The event is an opportunity to spark the interest in science and technology in kids,” Khoshnamak said.
