Welcome to Science at Cal
On March 23, 1868, the University of California was born. And Berkeley, its first campus, is today the most distinguished public university in the history of higher education. Guided by the motto Fiat Lux, our duty is to bring new knowledge to light … to illuminate solutions for bettering the human condition … to be a beacon of opportunity for promising young minds and top faculty. Throughout 2018, let’s celebrate 150 years of light — and project that light forward for another 150 years.
We create opportunities for the UC Berkeley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research community to share the wonder, excitement and relevance of their research with public audiences. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science at Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually.
- Monthly, free lectures and science cafes with leading researchers in fields from Astronomy to Zoology
- Hands-on science learning at numerous community events
- Partnerships with community-based organizations and educational institutions to impact science learning around the Bay Area.
