The open-house environment will feature activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Naraghi Hall of Science, the Science 1 Building and the greenhouse. There will also be tours of the Trans-California Pathway, an outdoor arboretum featuring plant communities native to a transect of California from the Central Valley to the High Sierra. With more than 20 activities available, students and their families will be provided with a “Passport to Science” booklet to track their activities throughout the day.
Organized by faculty and staff in the College of Science with support from the Office of Service Learning and students in the college, the event typically brings more than 2,000 visitors to campus. Science Day was established and has been principally directed by Mark A. Grobner, a professor in the Department of Biology. One of the fundamental goals of the event is to expose young students to new fields of science, and especially to spark an interest in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
Parking is complimentary on Science Day.
