Bay Area Science Festival presents Discovery Days at AT&T Park
AT&T park will be transformed into a science wonderland for the concluding event of the Bay Area Science Festival – a FREE science extravaganza on Saturday November 1st, 2014 11AM-4PM. Last year, more than 30,000 people enjoyed a non-stop program chock-full of interactive exhibits, experiments, games, and shows, all meant to entertain and inspire. With more than 150 exhibits from leading science and technology organizations from across the Bay Area, everyone can find something that will unleash their inner scientist.
Universities, science museums, research labs, after school organizations, and local companies join forces for an unprecedented opportunity to meet scientists and engineers. Topics include health & medicine, engineering, technology, biotechnology, climate science, and so much more. This year, every exhibit will be framed as investigative questions to encourage explorations and curiosity that we hope will continue throughout the school year.
Join us on the field and the fun, interactive activities that provide an inside-look at the science of sports, train like an astronaut, explore robotics, and pick up a science kit. Pilot an underwater ROV, build water sensors, and explore creatures from the depths in the new area in Seals Plaza at AT&T Park. Experience the best of biotech with a dozen of the Bay Area’s leading life science companies. Extract your DNA, explore your genes, and meet the scientists engineering the next cure. Meet the scientists shaping our collective future in this series of informal chats in the new edible garden at AT&T Park. Willie Mays Plaza will be overrun by robots of all shapes and sizes. Interact with High School robotics teams, startup companies, and cutting edge research robots. This area is run in collaboration with Silicon Valley Robotics. AT&T Park, 24 Willie Mays Plaza
