Farpoint Convention is proud to announce our teaming with the Museum of Science Fiction in Washington DC as a participant in the inaugural Escape Velocity, scheduled for July 1-3, 2016 at the Gaylord Resort and Conference Center, National Harbor in Maryland.
Escape Velocity is a micro world’s fair to promote science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) education within the context of science fiction using the fun of comic cons and fascination of science and engineering festivals. It’s mission is to re-invigorate the interest of our young people in STEAM by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational, and entertaining science festival in the United States using science fiction as the primary engine.
Farpoint will be participating in programming at Escape Velocity and has been invited to exhibit in the vendor’s hall for the weekend. As a special bonus to Farpoint 2016 attendees, a special “Farpoint at Escape Velocity” level has been set up as a Escape Velocity Kickstarter reward at the $60 level. For donating at this level, you will receive 1 standard 3 day ticket to Escape Velocity, a commemorative pin, a special edition MoSF/Star Trek 50th tee and an Escape Velocity Launch Crew wristband that gets you early access to some areas of the event, first option to purchase VIP add-ons, a 10% discount on Escape Velocity merchandise and other perks.
