The festival provides a wide range of science and technology activities – lectures, debates, exhibitions, workshops, etc. – at a variety of locations throughout the Bay Area. The goal is to get kids excited about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Check out North Bay events near you.

Discovery Day at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa is a major highlight of the week-long festival. Festival activities will be free. Families are encouraged to attend together. "Unleash your inner scientist” at this celebration of the Bay Area’s unparalleled leadership in science and technology. Please share the flyer with your family and friends.

Last Fall 2011, over 4,000 people attended the first Discovery Day at Infineon Raceway. Highlights there included liquid nitrogen ice cream, an emergency room patient robot, LEGO® engineering, strawberry DNA extraction, airplane and catapult launches, marble machines, and elephant toothpaste. In addition to Discovery Day, over 20 events took place in the North Bay, including Insecta-Palooza, Star Parties, hawk bandings, and hikes. You can expect a similar event this year.

The Buck Institute is a partner of the Bay Area Science Festival (BASF) and is playing a key role in coordinating activities in the North Bay. Agilent Technologies is the North Bay Discovery Day host. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor, please go to the main Festival Sponsor webpage for more information.
