The Bay Area Science Festival is BACK!

Science at Cal joins the fun this year with four exciting new programs described below. In addition to what Science at Cal has planned, all of our friends and partners across UC Berkeley will be participating in their own exciting ways! For a complete listing of events across the Bay Area (including some hosted by UC Berkeley) check out the full event listing: See you at the festival!

Discovery Days at Oracle Park

Sunday, Apr 24, 2022 | 11:00 AM–4:00 PM | Oracle Park, San Francisco

After two years, the Bay Area Science Festival’s Discovery Day at Oracle Park is back! Science at Cal will be there with an activity called “Brain Games.” See how our complex human brains can be fooled with just a few sheets of paper and movement! In this activity, participants design, build, and test an optical illusion of their own. Put your creativity and brain to the test at the Science at Cal exhibitor booth! Many other UC Berkeley groups will have exciting STEM activities at booths of their own! So make sure you come find us in booths P19 and P21 in the “UC Berkeley STEM Zone” on the Promenade!
