UC Berkeley takes part in science festival

November 30, 2013 by  

The University of California at Berkeley was just one of the science institutions which took part in the Bay Area Science Festival, held at University of California San Francisco.

The festival was produced by the Science and Health Education Partnership and lasted for 10 days, culminating in Discovery Days at AT&T Park on November 2.

This was the third year of the festival, providing fun, entertainment and education for people of all ages. The aim of the festival is to celebrate the role played by engineering, science, and technology in the local region and worldwide. In addition to UC Berkeley, the institutions taking part in the festival included the California Academy of Sciences, the Tech Museum, the Chabot Space and Science Center, and Stanford University.

Events take place at various locations in the Bay Area, with workshops, lectures, exhibitions, debates, concerts, and plays being offered to attendees. The first event to take place was ‘After Dark’ at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, introducing Homouroboros, an interactive zoetrope created by the artist Peter Hudson. Following a further 30 events, the festival ended with a transformation of the AT&T Park into a playground for the exploration of science.

Promotion of the festival will no doubt have started in advance of the first day of events, typically using local media and print companies to produce banner printing services and flyer printing. The use of eye-catching materials to describe events that took place throughout the event will provide information for interested parties.
