Science Cheerleader, Heidi, leads Big Cheer for Science with Pop Warner cheerleaders.

On April 27th, the Science Cheerleaders will help kick off the weekend-long USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. with a Big Cheer for Science and Engineering at 1:30 ET. After they get 10,000 kids cheering for science (plus thousands more across the country during satellite Big Cheer events) and measuring seismic results, they will perform science-themed routines, talk to kids about their dual careers as scientists and professional cheerleaders, sign autographs and lead citizen science activities selected from SciStarter.
The Big Cheer itself is our way of engaging people in one such activity, presented by the US Geological Survey. More than 50 schools will receive a free classroom seismograph to help measure the shaking of their Big Cheer. For years to come, those seismographs will automatically record and share local, detectable seismic activities and those classrooms will become part of the USGS’s growing network of Quake Catchers.
Now, let’s meet the Science Cheerleaders who will join us in Washington, D.C., 4/27-4/29!
