ASA Participates in USA Science and Engineering Festival

What do sociologists do? Find out and learn how the social world affects you at the USA Science and Engineering Festival, October 23-24, 2010 on the National Mall. The American Sociological Association (ASA) will be hosting a booth on the south side of Pennsylvania Ave between 13th and 14th Streets NW, just south of Freedom Plaza. We will be leading two hands-on sociology activities in collaboration with Social Explorer and ICPSR (the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research). Visitors to the USA Science and Engineering Festival will learn about sociology while developing and testing their own hypothesis about the social world. The two activities are called "Is Your Neighborhood Like the Rest of the United States?" and "Why are More Girls than Boys Planning for College?" ASA will also be conducting an assessment of their "science in a public space" teaching activity and running an "instant winner" game and giving away 10 iPod Shuffles at the ASA booth.
