Intelligent Systems Division Members Volunteer at Bay Area Science Festival

NASA’s Intelligent Systems Division participated in the 2018 Bay Area Science Festival (BASF) on Saturday, November 3rd at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Our division joined NASA’s contingent at the event, featuring four new exhibits across two booths, including hands-on activities about binary representation, tensegrity structures, Astrobee, and the building blocks of coding. A special thanks goes to our group of over 15 volunteers.

BACKGROUND: The Bay Area Science Festival (BASF) is an annual event aimed at inspiring the next generation of engineers and scientists with a series of interactive educational programs and activities. Organized by the Science and Health Education Partnership at University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), the BASF Discovery Day event at AT&T Park is free and open to the public, featuring dozens of demonstrations and activities from companies and organizations around the Bay Area.
