Event Details


Join us as we celebrate the collective progress toward a more open and transparent Federal Government!  


The "Gallery Walk" will feature posters around the room with highlights of the following innovative Open Government projects from the last year: 

ScienceEducation.gov: Users can now access Federal STEM education resources from a single query, tag, comment, and rate material using social networking capabilities. Content includes lesson plans, curricula, classroom activities, homework help and information relating to professional development.


Aristotle: The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has developed, in collaboration with private industry, a unique and powerful online system called Aristotle that enables group decision-making and enhances the ability of scientists and technologists to support their customers. 


Apps4Africa: was a contest launched by the Department of State, in collaboration with several private sector companies, to highlight the talent of local developers in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. The challenge was to build the best digital tools to address community challenges.


Challenge.gov: is a site administered by the U.S. General Services administration (GSA) in partnership with ChallengePost, where federal agencies are able to post their challenges and the public can offer innovative submissions to those challenges.


Apps.gov: is an online storefront for federal agencies to browse and purchase cloud-based IT services, for productivity, collaboration, and efficiency.


Virtual USA: emerged as a collaboration project between the Department of Homeland Security, the emergency response community and eight states across the nation. An innovative information sharing system, Virtual USA helps federal, state, local and tribal first responders work with all levels of government to make fast, well-informed decisions.


Recovery.gov: went live on February 17, 2009, the day President Obama signed the Recovery Act into law. The site's primary mandate is to give taxpayers user-friendly tools to track Recovery funds -- how and where they are spent--- in the form of charts, graphs, and maps that provide national overviews down to specific zip codes.
