In January, Bill Phillips lectured at the McKinley Technology High School in Washington, DC. The MIT Club of Washington organized the event as part of their K-12 Initiative. While at the event, Phillips joined the other presenters at a luncheon in which selected students received certificates of accomplishment from the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, which has a partnership program with McKinley Technology High School. He later gave a lecture titled "Time, Einstein, and the Coolest Stuff in the Universe," followed by discussion. The audience numbered about 1,000 and included both McKinley students and invited classes from other area high schools.
