This year, we’re putting the festival in your hands! Do you have an event that you’d like to see included in the 2016 Bay Area Science festival program? Fill out the short form below and we’ll be in touch. Even if your event isn’t completely formed, please submit your idea and we’ll work with you to bring it to fruition. And we HIGHLY encourage experimental, new ideas – nothing is off limits!

For events to be included in the science festival, we require:

  • Event is grounded in science, technology, engineering, or math. Events that blend science with other genres (art, music, food, etc) are welcome and encouraged, but there must be some science basis.
  • Event must be co-branded with the festival. We’re mainly looking for some festival identification (signage, short message about festival, handing out festival programs, etc.) at the event so our attendees understand the larger festival context.
  • Event meets basic safety and security criteria. It has to be safe to be part of BASF.
  • Event is affordable for a diverse audience. We want to encourage a wide audience to attend festival events and we strive to keep event costs low.
