Tour a UC Berkeley Cell Biology Lab

November 1, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Life Sciences Addition, UC Berkeley, University Drive
Berkeley, CA 94720 United States

In embryonic development, cells read the program encoded in their DNA to become cell types such as those found in muscle, liver or brain. The goal of Professor Hernan Garcia’s lab is to uncover the rules behind these decisions to predict and manipulate developmental programs. Find out how the lab combines physics, synthetic biology and new technologies to investigate developmental decisions in real time at the single cell level in the fruit fly embryo.

50 Years Since Our First Step: What Do We Know about the Moon?

November 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Chabot Space & Science Center, 10000 Skyline Blvd.
Oakland, CA 94619 United States

In this non-technical talk, astronomer Andrew Fraknoi looks at the past, present, and future of the Moon, including its violent origins, the mystery of the frozen water we have found, and its long-term future as it moves further away from us. Illustrated with beautiful images from orbit and on the surface, his talk will make the Moon come alive as an eerie world next door, as a changing object in our skies, and as a possible future destination for humanity. This talk is suitable for ages 12 years and older.

Climate Change Summit: Dam Renovation

November 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline St
Berkeley, CA 94703 United States

In Climate Change Summit, communities work together to weigh different stakeholder positions to solve a relevant problem that requires a nuanced understanding of climate issues. For 2019, our problem is about dam renovation or removal. Participants are randomly assigned into one of eight stakeholder positions and then guided through a “town hall” meeting where they must work together to come up with a solution. Play takes about 1 hour and is open to everyone, ages 8 and older.
