What to Expect in 2014

  • 150 Exhibits and Activities


    Experience over 150 hands-on exhibits and activities from leading science and technology organizations from across the Bay Area. Universities, science museums, research labs, after school organizations, and local companies join forces for an unprecedented opportunity to meet scientists and engineers. Topics include health & medicine, engineering, technology, biotechnology, climate science, and so much more. This year, every exhibit will be framed as investigative questions to encourage explorations and curiosity that we hope will continue throughout the school year.

  • Chevron STEM Zone


    Join us on the field and the fun, interactive activities that provide an inside-look at the science of sports, train like an astronaut, explore robotics, and pick up a science kit.

  • Oracle Marine Science Plaza


    Pilot an underwater ROV, build water sensors, and explore creatures from the depths in the new area in Seals Plaza at AT&T Park.

  • Life Science Alley


    Experience the best of biotech with a dozen of the Bay Area’s leading life science companies. Extract your DNA, explore your genes, and meet the scientists engineering the next cure.

  • Fireside Chats with Scientists/Engineers


    Meet the scientists shaping our collective future in this series of informal chats in the new edible garden at AT&T Park.

  • Bosch Robot Zoo


    Willie Mays Plaza will be overrun by robots of all shapes and sizes. Interact with High School robotics teams, startup companies, and cutting edge research robots. This area is run in collaboration with Silicon Valley Robotics

National Geographic Sensor Workshop

Build environmental sensors with National Geographic that will be used to do important conservation work following the Festival. Participants will be able to monitor their sensors remotely via Twitter after the Festival.

The possibilities that engineering provides to help explore and protect our world are limitless. National Geographic Emerging Explorer Shah Selbe is an engineer and conservation technologist who applies engineering to ocean conservation issues like illegal fishing.

Spend time with Shah and work with him to build remote sensors using Arduinos, temperature sensors, and small boats. Participants will be paired with an Oracle engineer during the session to personally assist them. Participants are recommended to be ages 10+.

Please only sign up if you can absolutely make the 2 hour session. Check-in with the National Geographic booths in Oracle Marine Plaza by Marina Gate. Sessions are at 1130 and 2 PM.


Festival Tshirts

Festival Tshirts will be on sale at the Promenade level info booth (behind home plate). Screenology designed this year’s shirt, but you’ll be able to buy any of their great items.
