More than 30,000 people — future scientists, aspiring engineers and their parents and friends — will have the opportunity to experience science up close at the annual Discovery Day, the pinnacle event of the weeklong Bay Area Science Festival. The science extravaganza will be held at Oracle Park in San Francisco on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
Each year, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory participates in the annual science fair, which features hundreds of exhibitors from the Bay Area’s premier science, business, cultural and educational establishments. The Laboratory’s popular Fun With Science program, an interactive demonstration of scientific concepts, will introduce booth visitors to basic concepts about electricity, chemistry, density, air pressure and states of matter.
New this year, the Lab will debut a series of interactive computer games, allowing participants to apply the scientific method to a variety of virtual experiments and games in physics and life sciences.
