Trashformation | Exploratorium Market Days: Free Art & Science Festival | Pier 15
It’s a firsthand look at the innovative ways engineers, artists, and creative thinkers in the Bay Area are re-using materials and creating new technologies to build a more sustainable future. Get energized by the Power Pallet, a carbon negative power generation system from Berkeley’s All Power Labs, which was originally designed as an art project for Burning Man 2007. Now, nearly 500 Power Pallets are being used across the globe including rural power projects in Haiti and by the U.S. Department of Defense.
Experience an otherworldly visit from the Y.E.S. (Youth Educational Spacecraft) Project, a mobile spaceship classroom made with re-purposed objects built by kids from the Tenderloin and Hunters Point Boys and Girls Clubs. September’s harvest season will bring Market Days: Savor Faire, featuring colorful and piquant investigations into salt, herbs and spices.
