    Hacking Space

    Free with admission
    Memorial Day,
    11am-3pm

    A group of our Galaxy Explorer Teen Volunteers have spent the past 8 months collaborating with a group of teenagers from Science City in Kolkata, India to examine how can space travel innovations be applied to life on earth. The Hacking Space Student Exchange project has brought these international teams together to draw inspiration from NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization to find innovations that could be applied to solve environmental problems plaguing communities in both countries. Join us at Chabot to learn, directly from the student’s themselves, what they’ve discovered, through hands on student developed demonstrations.
