Science at Cal Welcome

Science at Cal brings the wonders of STEM research at UC Berkeley to the community

Science at Cal Video Crowdfunding Campaign

Science at Cal is launching our first crowdfunding campaign! We got off to an encouraging start with the Big Give, and we’re hoping you can help us toward even greater success.

This campaign will raise funds to support one full year of professional film and sound recording, editing, and online hosting of videos of our popular  Science at Cal Lecture Series. These talks feature renowned UC Berkeley researchers from all Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. 

Visit our fundraising page for more details about how you can contribute to the campaign, and please spread the word to others who are interested in supporting free and accessible STEM learning experiences. Our goal is to fully fund this program by June 30.

Our Mission

Science at Cal connects UC Berkeley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) researchers with diverse community groups of all ages and backgrounds, for science engagement and learning. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science at Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually.

Our vision

In 2008, Science at Cal was envisioned as a unifying effort to raise public awareness, understanding and appreciation of scientific research at Berkeley. 

To realize this vision, we engage the vast Berkeley STEM community as science communicators and foster creative collaborations among campus and community-based groups who share our commitment to equity and inclusion in STEM education and careers. 

Throughout the year, Science at Cal presents ongoing, free outreach programs in STEM and other disciplines, helps promote other groups’ related efforts, and creates new programs and initiatives at Berkeley and in the community. This broad scope of activities is made possible by Science at Cal’s dynamic network of campus alliances and valuable community partnerships.
