Our sun is, on average, 93 million miles away, and yet it is so powerful that you cannot look directly at it. What do we really know about this object at the center of our solar system?

Science at Cal and The Lawrence Hall of Science have teamed up to create this virtual event featuring both UC Berkeley scientists and The Lawrence Hall of Science educators.

Join us online to learn more about our sun in this live conversation suitable for adults and families alike. We’ll tackle a variety of hot questions from how do we study the sun to what have we learned from it.

Event Host

Science at Cal supports the advancement of the public’s understanding of science. We create opportunities for the UC Berkeley STEM research community to share the wonder, excitement, and relevance of their research with public audiences. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science at Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually.
The Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley is the country’s only science center that is part of a top-tier, public research university. This distinctive affiliation allows the Hall to partner with world-class scientists, engineers, educational leaders, and teachers, with the goal of developing and disseminating the most innovative and effective science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs available today. Our mission is to inspire and foster science learning for all—especially for those with limited access to science.
