About Science@Cal

Science@Cal supports the advancement of the public’s understanding of science.

We create opportunities for the UC Berkeley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research community to share the wonder, excitement and relevance of their research with public audiences. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science@Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually.
