Lab entertains thousands during Science Discovery Day at AT&T Park

On Sunday, Nov. 6, more than 21,000 people crowded AT&T Park for a day of hands-on experiments, exhibits, games and shows during Science Discovery Day at AT&T Park. The event was the culmination of the Bay Area Science Festival's week-long science festivities, which featured more than 100 fun, interactive science and technology events. See more photos .

During the successful event, LLNL joined more than 170 exhibitors to bring science to the masses. Situated along the third base line, the Lab booth was in prime position to welcome visitors and drew in a constant crowd. Science enthusiasts, young and old, flocked to the LLNL tents to view a 3D video from the National Ignition Facility, test their knowledge with a Science Challenge Game and experiment with solving the energy crisis with the interactive electronic climate simulation.

Throughout the day, volunteers drew constant crowds with the Lab's popular "Fun With Science" presentation, translating topics like air pressure, chemical reactions and electricity into interactive experiments like "Elephant Toothpaste," "Marshmallow Man" and "Leaky Bottle."
