We will kick off the festival with more than 10,000 students with a BIG Cheer for Science. The United States Geological Survey will measure the seismic waves of our cheer. Schools across the nation will do the same cheer at the same time (1:30 pm ET) and will measure seismic activity at their own school using (free) classroom earthquake sensors, generously provided by the USGS. It’s not too late to sign up and get your school or university involved in the Big Cheer! The Science Cheerleaders will perform science-themed routines, sign autographs, and, of course, get thousands of people involved in citizen science projects featured on our sister-site, SciStarter!
