SETIcon: Public Science Conference

(Aug. 13-15, Santa Clara, Calif.)

SETIcon will be a family-friendly event and features noted scientists explaining new developments in everyday language; stars of science fiction TV series and movies, plus the advisors who helped with the science; panels to air controversial issues and share perspectives; special sessions where you can ask questions of your favorite guests in a smaller setting; and a family room with hands-on activities (for kids 12 and older).

The conference fee is $20 per day, or $35 for a weekend pass (banquet and Friday events extra.) Educators who attend may obtain 1 semester credit (upper division) via San Jose State University’s Bay Area Earth Science Institute (separate tuition fee).
