Exploring Your Universe 2013: Sunday, November 17

Posted on Aug. 21, 2013

Exploring Your Universe (EYU) is a FREE public outreach event that showcases science from departments across UCLA through hundreds of fun, hands-on activities, demonstrations and experiments for all ages.

EYU is a free event open to the public held every year in late fall on the UCLA campus.  From launching rockets to creating fossils to seeing a UCLA planetarium show, this event has something fun for everyone!  In 2012, more than 3000 participants flocked to UCLA’s campus to join the all-day science exhibition – come participate at this year’s event in October!

This event includes participation from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Earth and Space Sciences, Atmospheric Sciences, the CNSI High School NanoScience Program, and the Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology. It is sponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, UCLA Center for Student Programming, and each of the departments listed above. This event was developed by graduate students, faculty, and staff in each of the these departments.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, November 17.  Here's our exciting list of lectures in Geology 3656:
