Our educational partnerships with the community extend well beyond public schools to workforce boards, state and federal agencies, corporations, and more. For instance, we are a key partner in the annual Bay Area Science Festival (BASF), a ten-day event designed to energize local youth about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). During BASF, Gladstone scientists lead several STEM discussions at local museums and universities; they also staff a booth at “Discovery Day,” the festival’s grand finale event at AT&T Park, where 30,000 attendees explore a free outdoor museum with hundreds of interactive displays. In another example, our investigators partner with the California Academy of Sciences, giving presentations and engaging with young visitors during their science festivals and events.
