Exploratorium Market Days: Free Art & Science Festival | Pier 15

Exploratorium Market Days: Burning Man Art & Spaceship Classroom | Pier 15Exploratorium Market Days is a series of free, open-air, mini-festivals that bring together scientists, artists, and educators to present an abundant bazaar of new ideas and activities to the Exploratorium’s public plaza at Pier 15 from 11 am to 3 pm on the third Saturday of each month from July through October, 2014.

>> Market Days events at Pier 15 are free and open to the public. Please note that museum admission is not free – this event takes place in the open-to-the-public areas.

Market Days will offer a bounty of free entertainment – from startling encounters with cutting-edge technology, to sensory explorations of spices and herbs, to transformations of trash into wondrous new masterpieces.

Exploratorium Market Days: Burning Man Art & Spaceship Classroom | Pier 15On August 17, 2013, consider the creative potential of trash with Market Days: Trashformation.

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.
