EYU 2012 will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 12 - 5 pm (daytime activities) and 5 - 8 pm (nighttime activites) at UCLA's campus (see Visitor Info link above for general directions and scroll down on this page for a detailed campus map specific to this event). This event is FREE of charge to the public and FAMILY-FRIENDLY!

This year we have even more activities and groups than ever, including outside groups like the STAR Eco Station. We will feature many activities and demonstrations open to the general public (including students), and we have added even more than last year! Activities for all ages include workshops, faculty and graduate student talks, planetarium shows, solar telescope viewing, comet making, weather tours, dinosaur fossils, physics demos and much more!

This event includes participation from Astronomy Live!, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, the Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology, ESSN, SMACS, Alpha Chi Sigma, BEAM, IEEE, and OSA/SPIE. It is sponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, UCLA Center for Student Programming, and each of the departments listed above. This event was developed by graduate students, faculty, and staff in each of the these departments.

Exploring Your Universe will still be held even if there is rain. All outdoor activities will be moved into the Math Sciences Building, the Geology Building, and the Physics and Astronomy Building. The Info Booth will be at the Math Sciences Building. So rain or shine plan on coming, but maybe bring an umbrella just in case!
