Techstravaganza is a free, open to the public hands-on STEM activity fair that attracts thousands of visitors from the DMV area each year.
At Techstravaganza, you will find over 50 different labs and demonstrations that cover a wide range of STEM concepts so there is something for everyone!
This event is open to children of all ages. However, the labs specifically target elementary and middle school students.
The Literary Hill BookFest began as a way of turning the Literary Hill column that Karen Lyon writes for the Hill Rag into a live event. Karen’s column showcases local writers and, after more than a decade of monthly columns, it was clear that Capitol Hill seems to have an almost limitless supply. What if we could bring together some of these authors who live on or write about Capitol Hill to meet their readers, as well as each other? Thus was born the 2011 Literary Hill BookFest. Everybody liked it so much that they encouraged us to do it again, and now we’re gearing up for another year.
Also represented at the BookFest are the Hill’s booksellers, libraries, publishers, and other organizations with a focus on books. Our ultimate goal is to make Capitol Hill a respected center for literacy and the humanities in the metropolitan D.C. area. And we’re well on our way. Our first BookFest attracted more than a thousand visitors; last year, an estimated 1,500 people came to Eastern Market to meet our local writers and learn more about literary services in our area. Please join us this year and make it our best BookFest ever!
Thanks to our animal books, we were stationed in the nature room!
We were excited to be placed next to these tortoises; one is African Spurred and the other is Red-Footed.

There were so many other incredible exhibitors at KIDfest, including PARO, an advanced interactive robot which provides psychological and social comforts to humans through physical interaction.
These therapeutic robots have been in use in Japan and throughout Europe since 2003. It mimics the comforts of a therapy animal in places and contexts where real animals are not welcome, such as hospitals, nursing homes, and around patients with allergies.
By interaction with this animatronic and artificially intelligent cuddly creature, people's memories of pet animals or cherished stuffed animals are triggered, helping patients feel amused, relaxed, and motivated.
Here, Science Naturally president and founder Dia Michels poses with a PARO representative and a PARO baby harp seal therapeutic robot.
"We are so excited to be a Latino Literacy Now award winner! It is very important to us that our content is accessible to both English and Spanish speaking students. This recognition will help spread the word about the quality STEM books that are available for the Latinx community!"
