In 2008, Science at Cal was envisioned as a unifying effort to raise public awareness, understanding and appreciation of scientific research at Berkeley. To realize this vision, we engage the vast Berkeley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) community as science communicators and foster creative collaborations among campus and community-based groups who share our commitment to equity and inclusion in STEM education and careers. Meet the folks that make Science at Cal run by checking out our staff and our advisory council.
Science at Cal connects UC Berkeley STEM researchers with diverse community groups of all ages and backgrounds, for science engagement and learning. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science at Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually. Throughout the year, Science at Cal presents ongoing, free outreach programs in STEM and other disciplines, helps promote other groups’ related efforts, and creates new programs and initiatives at Berkeley and in the community. This broad scope of activities is made possible by Science at Cal’s dynamic network of campus alliances and valuable community partnerships.
