Exploring Your Universe!

Posted on Oct 20, 2011 in News, Outreach

A family science day at UCLA

Exploring Your Universe (EYU) is a FREE public outreach event held on the UCLA campus every year in the Fall that showcases science from departments across UCLA through hundreds of fun, hands-on activities, demonstrations and experiments for all ages. With wide involvement from students, staff and faculty, EYU has quickly become the main science outreach event at the university. In addition to hands-on demonstrations and experiments, there is a lecture series, a planetarium show, a physics show, and access to rare fossils and UCLA’s world-class meteorite collection – this event truly has something fun for everyone! In 2013, more than 4500 participants flocked to UCLA’s campus to join the all-day science exhibition – come participate at this year’s event in November! For more information regarding this year’s event, scroll down.

The 2014 Exploring Your Universe outreach event will be held on November 16, 2014 on UCLA’s campus.

We recommend visitors arrive early and plan to stay for the duration of the event, as there is plenty to see. We will be giving away 500 free swag bags at the beginning of the event!

Weather permitting, the event will include nighttime activities such as telescope observing in the evening after the rest of the exhibits close. For more detailed information, visit our main EYU page: http://planets.ucla.edu/outreach/exploring-your-universe/
