SEE EVENT DETAILS
The 10th annual Bay Area Science Festival, northern California's largest free educational event, is going virtual in 2020 with more than 125 all-ages experiences October 21- 25. Current event forums, games and contests, and active explorations will bring together science role models, families, youth and adults to experience the wonder of science.

"More than ever, the critical role science plays in our daily lives is self-evident and is sparking interest in STEM," said Katherine Nielsen, co-founder of the Bay Area Science Festival. "We had an overwhelming response to transforming the festival from in-person to virtual, resulting in a huge collection of fun, fascinating and unexpected opportunities for people of all ages to discover science together."

The Bay Area Science Festival is produced by the Science & Health Education Partnership (SEP) at UCSF in collaboration with Bay Area universities, museums, cultural institutions, corporations, after-school groups, research labs, government agencies and more. Chevron is the presenting sponsor for the tenth consecutive year.

There are hands-on virtual experiences for children, teens, families and adults. Current event topics include climate change, racism and science, wildfire science, and talking to kids in Spanish about COVID-19. Hands-on virtual fun for the uber-curious involves the Science of Pulling Noodles, Oakland Zoo Quest, and a Bee Colorful Poster Contest. Behind the scenes tours include UCSF's Makers Lab, UC Berkeley formula race car lab and Dept. of Energy's Bay Area SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory COVID-19 testing facility. Another event brings together Bay Area residents by radio and live streaming internet audio to collectively view the setting Moon, planets and star clusters. More than 25 [email protected] events include supplies, while they last, that are mailed to households to build paper microscopes, tiny cars and fiber optic flashlights.

"UCSF and so many others are eager to come together and share our collective passion for science and showcase the STEM opportunities and connections that exist in the Bay Area," said Nielsen. "BASF partners met this year's challenge and adapted."
