The Bay Area Science Festival returns to AT&T Park in San Francisco on Saturday, Nov. 11.

The 7th annual Discovery Day at AT&T Park features hundreds of activities to “unleash your inner scientist” and explore some of the scientific and technical work going on at the national labs, colleges and universities and research centers located throughout the Bay Area. Once again, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be on display with two booths on the promenade level.

Each year, Discovery Day features an array of hands-on exhibits, experiments, games and stage demonstrations, all designed to inspire the next generation of great minds. Last year more than 30,000 people attended.

The event, with more than 150 exhibitors, takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free of charge.

Lawrence Livermore will feature its popular Fun With Science interactive program, 3D virtual tours of Lab programs and special energy bikes that will challenge participants’ peddle power and gauge just how much wattage it takes to keep a household going.

"The Laboratory is proud to be returning to Discovery Day to help inspire and educate young minds through hands-on encounters in science and engineering," Lab Director Bill Goldstein said.
