FREE ADMISSION

Join SciStarter at the Bay Area Science Festival this November! This free festival will be packed with science enthusiasts. Come to explore hundreds of hands-on activities, opportunities to meet local scientists and engineers, plus fun and educational entertainment.

Find SciStarter to learn about citizen science projects you can do in the Bay Area and beyond. We’ll be getting you set to look for ZomBees, monitor migrating butterflies, band local birds, and even learn about finding exoplanets!

From 10am-12pm, we will be joined by Kayla and Anelisse from the 49ers Gold Rush squad who are also STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals. Come learn how they found a love for science and turned it into a career.

I have obtained my Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Sport Psychology and am currently in graduate school working toward my Doctorate (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology. I intend to utilize my degrees and pursue a career as a sport psychologist specifically working with dancers and football players. Sport psychology is an interdisciplinary science that draws upon various fields such as, biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. Sport psychology ultimately focuses on how psychological factors influences the way an individual performs. The role of a sport psychologist is to clinically diagnose and treat a client through therapeutic tools and performance enhancement techniques.” Learn more about Kayla, here.

“In high school, I loved environmental science and created a study to manage water quality in my hometown. I was also the first female student to exhaust our advanced math and science program! At Stanford, I studied mechanical engineering, which relies on physics for analysis!  I got to take principles I learned from physics and chemistry and apply them one step further to study (and also create!) objects that exist in the real world. I’m now working at a software company, which focuses on computer science.” Learn more about Anelisse, here.

Meet our partner: USA Science & Engineering Festival

By March 31st, 2010 at 10:00 am | Comment

USA Sci-Eng Fest Official Partner Logo_rgbScience For Citizens is proud to be a partner of the inaugural USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., October 2010. A collaboration of more than 500 science and engineering organizations, the festival is designed to engage young people in the sciences.

The festival will culminate with a two-day expo on the National Mall featuring hundreds of fun, hands-on activities.

If you can’t meet up with us there, why not stage your own festival? The national group is encouraging student clubs, schools, universities, community organizations, and companies to hold satellite events in their communities. For advice on setting up a local event and to get promotional help from the national festival, see Host a Satellite Event.
