Partnered with the Boys & Girls Club to offer accessible STEM workshops to our community through our Learning Everywhere Initiative.

We brought science to life with the help of hundreds of local high school students, who engaged in hands-on science demonstrations and impactful community service through our Galaxy Explorers program.

Celebrated the New Year every year at the strokes of midnight around the world with our annual Balloon Drop.

Brought a piece of the Moon to Oakland with moon rocks from the Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 mission.

Found new ways to tell stories with Tales of the Maya Sky. The first digital full-dome show highlighting a Latin American culture, was produced and premiered at Chabot.

Raised awareness of climate change in Bill Nye’s Climate Lab through interactive displays and solutions-based activities.

Invited visitors to observe the world around them in new ways on our 3200-square foot Observation Deck.

 

More On The Horizon

Our 20th Anniversary is a time to reflect our history, and a moment to look forward at the future of Chabot Space & Science Center. This year’s challenges have created an opportunity for the Center to reenvision how we serve our community. While our doors are closed to general admission, our institution is anything but closed. There is profound transformation happening at Chabot. Our team is learning, prototyping and planning exciting new initiatives that we are thrilled to announce.
