Get ready science geeks. For ten days (starting this Thursday) you can participate in more than 50 events during the 6th annual Bay Area Science Festival.
The UCSF-sponsored fete brings together Bay Area science institutions that provide activities — from hands-on workshops to concerts — at multiple locations throughout San Francisco, the East Bay, the North Bay and on the Peninsula.
“For this year’s festival, we’re bringing science to baseball stadiums and movie theaters -- places people naturally go -- to showcase that science is an important part of Bay Area culture," says Bay Area Science Festival director Kishore Hari.
The activities all take place at different times and some sell out quickly so check the full schedule online.
The festival’s free finale event, Discovery Days, takes place at AT&T Park on Saturday November 5. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the stadium becomes an outdoor science museum with hands-on demonstrations like Life Science Alley, where you can extract your own DNA or the Robot Zoo where you can test out machines built by students, startups and local research organizations.
