Mix and mingle for young professionals


WASHINGTON -- The Marian Koshland Science Museum will hold a program for young professionals, interns, and students interested in current policy issues, the science behind the headlines, technology, media, journalism, and medicine from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 3, 2005.

At this special after-hours event, visitors will have the opportunity to mingle and network while viewing the museum's state-of-the-art exhibits. A $5 admission includes pizza and sodas; $10 admission includes pizza, soda, and beer and wine (must be 21 or older - valid identification required).

Featuring interactive exhibits targeted to students and adults, the museum helps translate the studies conducted by the National Academies into accessible, engaging exhibits. The museum's inaugural exhibits allow visitors to glimpse the frontiers of today's scientific research; witness the potential effects of global warming; and explore how DNA analysis can help catch criminals and stop epidemics.

The museum is located at the corner of 6th & E Streets, N.W. in Washington, D.C., one block from the MCI Center and National Building Museum, three blocks from the National Mall, and one block from the Gallery Place and Judiciary Square Metrorail stations, serviced by the red, yellow, and green lines.
