CSW participated in the third annual Spooky Mad Science Expo at the Watergate at Landmark in Alexandria, Virginia. The event to combined Halloween and science learning projects. On October 5, CSW volunteers Christina Mainka and Allison Aldridge made polymer worms and gave out glow sticks to the children. The children learned a little about polymers and chemiluminescence along the way. Some of the other volunteers were from the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, National Science Foundation, National Society of Black Engineers, RESET and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The children enjoyed making the worms and wearing the personal protective equipment.
