Visitors will enjoy a fun-filled day of hands-on science activities and demonstration stations. There will also be special Planetarium Shows offered every half hour, and Seeing, a new exhibition about visual perception from San Francisco’s Exploratorium will be open.

“This electrifying day of hands-on science encourages young people to want to learn more about science and technology and inspires them to become the professionals who use science and technology to solve problems,” notes miSci Education Specialist Elizabeth Hoffman.

All science stations and activity zones will be staffed with miSci educators, area scientists and volunteers to provide instruction, to answer questions, and to have fun with science. During ZOOM Into Science, visitors can also explore miSci’s exhibits: Fueling the Future, Inside Out: MRI & You and the new Seeing exhibition from the Exploratorium in San Francisco.
