Join us for an evening of fun, food and exploration at the new Exploratorium! 

6:00 - 8:00: Catered reception, including a talk about early results and future directions for research in the museum's Bay Observatory, a glass building at the end of the pier with unique and stunning views of the city skyline and the Bay.

8:00 - 10:00: Free time to enjoy the new Exploratorium, which opened at Pier 15 six months ago.

About the Bay Observatory: A major research platform within the Observatory is the Wired Pier, a collection of scientific instruments and sensors that is continuously monitoring water conditions, weather, climate, and air quality at the site. The Wired Pier is also a node in a scientific observing network stretching around the San Francisco Bay, the California coastline and beyond, a unique role for a science museum to both participate in research and communicate the process and results of ongoing environmental science.

Live and time-series data, as well as data visualizations from this network, are displayed on monitors and on a video wall in the Observatory, and shared with scientists, educators, students and the public in real time. 

NCSWAns and their guests (we ask that members bring no more than one guest, to allow room for as many members as possible, and everyone must be 18 years of age or older) get museum admission, food, and the talk for the low, low price of $14 per person. That's less than regular museum admission!
