10:00am - 4:00pm

University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742

On Saturday, April 29 from 10 am to 4 pm, the University of Maryland will host 75,000 visitors for its 19th annual Maryland Day celebration, a one-day open house featuring over 400 family-friendly exhibits and events.

Join the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) on the front lawn of Chincoteague Hall to play "Test Your Terrorism IQ". Learn about the similarities and differences between what people commonly perceive to be true about terrorism and what research has shown to be fact. And are you a pop culture guru or national security wonk? Put your knowledge to the test with our "Rock Band or Terrorist Organization?" smartphone game. Volunteers will be stationed at the START booth all day to answer your questions about START research, internship opportunities and education/training programs.
