UPDATE: They do prefer that we walk around with the guests as opposed to standing at a table. They will provide an event pass to those who do sign up for this event. They can get a table if we can have more than one person per day. This is more of an interactive event as opposed to a regular convention. They will have costuming panels, technical costume panels, QnA's, anime panels, photo ops, and Friday will be a Science Fair for underprivileged children.

Event Name
Escape Velocity 2018

Event Description
The Museum of Science Fiction and NASA are partnering to bring Escape Velocity 2018 to Washington, DC. The event is a futuristic world’s fair to promote STEAM educational activities within the context of science fiction using the fun of comic cons and fascination of science and engineering festivals. Escape Velocity 2018 seeks to make a measurable positive impact to boost informal learning on the more conceptually challenging academic areas. Escape Velocity's mission is to re-invigorate the interest of our young people in science, technology, engineering, art, and math by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational, and entertaining science festival in the United States using science fiction as the primary engine. Escape Velocity will achieve orbit on May 25-27, 2018 at the Marriott Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.

I am guessing they have booth space for us? What will be provided?

I am not sure in what capacity I will be there, but plan on at least one day.

Had the same thought. Can we only sign up for a single day? Trooping the Smithsonian too for Solo.

But how can the Rebellions best test pilot not be at a STEM event?

Remember we are all volunteers. You can sign up for all days, one day, or no days. Totally up to you and your schedule. Wink

Looks like their intention this year is to have us roam around with guests. But, I will follow up again with them now to confirm their intentions.

Both, but it would help to know what's involved, since it doesn't sound like just a table signup(?). If at all, I'll be available Friday and maybe some of Saturday.

They sound like they want us walking around and intermingling and walking around with the guests. They can supply a table if we like. Let me see if they have anything else in an email that may be helpful.

Tentative for Friday. What is the policy for Lightsabers and Blasters?
