10th Annual Foundations Of Science Breakfast
On Thursday, May 16, 2013, Pacific Science Center held its annual Foundations of Science Breakfast. It was another sold-out event at the Four Seasons Hotel and a wonderful morning for the Science Center. Many thanks to our speakers, sponsors, attendees and everyone who helped make the event a success for science education.
We were thrilled to have Eric Liu as the keynote speaker for the 2013 Breakfast (pictured above with Pacific Science Center CEO Bryce Seidl). It was an inspiring presentation filled with insight on the state of our society and the roles we all play within it. We were honored to be described by Eric as "one of the most powerful nodes of learning and citizenship in our country" and by his recognition that the spirit of citizen science is the spirit of Pacific Science Center.
A highlight of the morning was the educational activity led by members of Pacific Science Center's Discovery Corps teen career ladder program. Guests learned about optical illusions as two high school students guided the audience through a demonstration and then shared personal stories about the impact the program has made in their lives.
Pacific Science Center thanks Barbara Hulit for serving as the Chair of the 2013 Breakfast. Hulit is the President of Fluke Corporation, Vice President of Danaher Corporation and member of Pacific Science Center's Board of Directors.
The Foundations of Science Breakfast raises important funds for Pacific Science Center and is an opportunity for attendees to learn about Science Center programs which are making a difference in schools and communities across the state.
