Created by the Bay Area’s scientific, cultural, and educational institutions, the 5th annual Bay Area Science Festival returns October 22nd – November 7th 2015. The festival will provide a wide range of science & technology activities – lectures, debates, exhibitions, concerts, plays, workshops, etc. –at a variety of locations throughout the Bay Area.
Discovery Days brings the fun and excitement of science to a huge crowd. In conjunction with local science outreach groups, Discovery Days hosts over 200 hands-on-activities, dozens of exhibits, numerous performances, and family-oriented science entertainment. Attendees are families generally with children aged 0-14, with a special emphasis on those who traditionally do not have access to quality science education resources. In 2015, we’re hosting Discovery Days at AT&T Park, at Cal State East Bay, and at Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa.
High profile science acts from around the country anchor evening programming during the festival. Past performers include NPR’s Radiolab, Food Network’s Alton Brown, and famous scientists from around the world.
Each year, we host over 20 tours to highlight the scientific wonders of the Bay Area. From hiking along the San Andreas Fault with a geologist or touring a deep sea ocean exploration manufacturing center with marine engineers, each tour highlights local resources with the guidance of a scientists or engineer.
This ambitious collaborative public education initiative brings together our leading academic, scientific, corporate, and non-profit institutions to showcase the region as an international leader in innovation. Based on similar festivals throughout the world, the 50+ festival events are expected to attract over 50,000 active participants, many of whom traditionally do not have access to quality scientific resources.
