For a second year in a row, JBEI collaborated with the Bay Area Science Festival (BASF). BASF, the largest science education event in the Bay Area, is a 10 day festival organized by the Science & Health Education Partnership at UC San Francisco. It provides wide range of science & technology activities at various locations throughout the Bay Area.
This year JBEI organized on October 27 an Explorer Day for the public which included a tour of its laboratories, and on November 5 JBEI’s volunteers participated at BASF’s closing event, the Discovery Day at AT&T Park. This year’s theme was “Unleash your Inner Scientist”. JBEI had a number of table top activities to help raise awareness about the benefits of biofuels.
We thank JBEI’s volunteers for their support: Alex Tsai, Andria Rodrigues, Constance ‘Connie’ Bailey, Irina Silva, Jipeng Yan, Kosuke Iwai, Leanne Chan, Philip Gach, Raphael Gabriel, Rasha Anayah, Rochelle Urban, Sarah LaFrance, Sasha Yogiswara and Tim Lease.
