Exhibits & Programs

Meet A Scientist (formerly known as Scientist Spotlight)

Discover how science works alongside the pros at Meet A Scientist. This program is free with admission and happens nearly every month (always on first Saturdays). Meet A Scientist features two rounds (11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 2 – 5 p.m.) of local scientists who share their work with you through hands-on activities and conversation. The program welcomes guests of all ages to interact with the scientists, who are more than happy to answer all sorts of questions relating to their current research. You might learn how scientists detect cancer-causing genes, how bugs fly, or how our brains remember what we’ve seen. Come back for new scientist guests each month.

This program exclusively features Pacific Science Center Science Communication Fellows. Fellows are local science-based professionals trained in communication and committed to sharing their love of science with you.

Entry to Meet A Scientist is included with the price of general admission – FREE for Pacific Science Center Members. Contact Marley Jarvis at mjarvis@pacsci.org or (206) 269-5768 for more information.
