Looking to spend a fun weekend with your kids, learning fun things about science and technology? Introducing the Bay Area Science Festival!
Bay Area Science Festival is Northern California’s largest education event, bringing together STEM role models, families, youth and adults to experience the wonder of science.
In its 10th year, the festival is launching in collaboration with San Francisco Bay Area universities, museums, cultural institutions, libraries, corporations, after-school groups, research labs and government agencies.
As a part of this, we are introducing an exciting event to learn about Cosmology and the Universe!
Ever wondered what our Universe is all about? Where it all began? What the future holds for our Universe?
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) is observing 30 million galaxies over the next five years to find out answers to these profound questions!
The scientists who are working on this large cosmological survey are coming together to teach all about Dark Energy and its effects on our Universe at DESI High: School of the Dark Universe, an initiative targeted teach high school kids about how it’s all done! The participants learn all about Dark Energy science and start running their own experiments with hot-off-the-telescope data. They’ll also get to meet DESI scientists and an opportunity to get their science career off the ground.
Join us at the Bay Area Science fest on Sat. Oct. 24th at 12.30pm PST.
The registration is free and open for everyone! It’s a virtual event, so everyone is welcome! ☺
