About Us

Created by the Bay Area’s scientific, cultural, and educational institutions, the 8th annual Bay Area Science Festival returns with a 9 day festival, scheduled October 26th – November 3rd. The Science & Health Education Partnership (SEP) at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is pleased to produce the festival alongside a core group of science institutions. The festival will provide a wide range of science & technology activities – lectures, debates, exhibitions, concerts, plays, workshops, etc. –at a variety of locations throughout the Bay Area. Over the 9 days, the festival hosts over 45 events for children of all ages, from 9-90. 75,000 are expected to attend in 2018.

 

Young people will understand that science is fun, exciting and important, encouraging them to pursue careers in science; parents will feel more confident about supporting their kids’ interests in science; teachers will have new resources to get students thinking about science outside of the classroom; and, policy-makers and corporate leaders will understand that the public demand for science-related resources is real…and requires investment and support.
