Helix by Exploratorium | 316 State St, Los Altos, CA

Exploratorium’s Helix Happy Hour | Peninsula

Part science museum, part retail space, and part community center, the Helix, presented by the Exploratorium, is located in Los Altos and engages with the local community to create programs for all ages.

Every third Friday of the month from 6-8 pm, Helix hosts an adults-only Happy Hour with music, talks, presentations and other fun happenings. Ages 18+ are welcome.

Please note, this event takes place in Los Altos, and although it is presented by Exploratorium it does not take place in the actual museum in SF.

Unfortunately, Helix has now closed.

Come chill out with frozen treats made using liquid nitrogen. Exploratorium staff scientist Julie Yu will reveal the secret behind Dippin Dots and create DIY ice cream courtesy of -196°C.

Julie is the Director of the Teacher Institute. She first participated in the Institute as a middle school math and science teacher, then went on to graduate school, earning a PhD in chemical engineering with a minor in molecular and cell biology from the University of California, Berkeley. In 2006, after completing her research in viruses, stem cells, and how to win at foosball, Julie returned to the Exploratorium and discovered an ideal blend of science, education, and play. Julie’s passion is creating hands-on activities that demonstrate real science with the simplest materials possible.
