The next 10-days are jammed packed with all kids of science fun – most of it free – as part of the Bay Area Science Festival. The annual festival includes a Discovery Day at AT&T Park, a talk with Alton Brown, and all kinds of interactive fun, among much more. Most of the events are free and family friendly, some require reservations, and others will fill up fast.
There is a little something for everything, but the underlying theme is that science is fun, inspiring, and should be celebrated. Science plays a role in our every day life, of course it should be celebrated.
Local activities this weekend as part of the festival include: The Tech Challenge 2013 kick off; a live production of Big Picture Science at the Computer History Museum; a Stanford talk on whether a scientific approach to cooking takes the joy out of it; and a look inside SLAC for those ages 12 and up (unfortunately already full).
