Bay Area Science Festival
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
On Saturday the Bay Area Science Festival comes to a close as scientists, researchers, engineers, and more take over AT&T Park for the sixth annual Discovery Day. Nearly every part of the ballpark will be filled with science related content. This year there will be over 150 hands-on exhibits and activities; the interactive Stem Zone which will look at the science of sports, robotics, and training like an astronaut; the Robot Zoo which will have robot displays and demos including those built by local students and startup companies.
If you’re thinking of heading over to the ballpark to unleash your inner Bill Nye the Science Guy, let Muni take you to AT&T Park. Service on the N Judah, T Third, E Embarcadero, 10 Townsend, 30 Stockton, 45 Union/Stockton and 47 Van Ness will get you to or near the ballpark.
Muni service note: There are no planned service adjustments, but nearby routes may see minor delays due to increased ridership.
