Friday: 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Life Sciences Research Weekend is a unique hands-on science experience taking place this weekend at Pacific Science Center. Live demonstrations, interactive exhibits, and science talks provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the exciting world of life sciences and the role it plays in daily life.
The weekend provides a forum for young people, families and citizen scientists to learn about the breakthrough discoveries happening in our community. Last year, over 14,000 people visited Pacific Science Center during Life Sciences Research Weekend.
Visit the Fred Hutch booth
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is participating, alongside 25 notable companies and research institutions from the Pacific Northwest.
Feeding stickleback fish, analyzing bacteria from common household surfaces, and zooming in on the microscopic structure of common organisms are just a few of the activities Fred Hutch will present. These educational activities are designed by Fred Hutch Molecular and Cellular Biology graduate students with help from the Science Education Partnership program.
Be inspired by research and meet the scientists
With fun and engaging activities for all ages, Life Sciences Research Weekend is a fantastic way to meet scientists leading the field and learn about the groundbreaking research taking place in the Pacific Northwest.
Life Sciences Research Weekend is organized by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research and the Pacific Science Center.
This program is made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award to Pacific Science Center from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health.
