Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Sometime in 2009, the Chabot Space and Science Center hopes to debut a new museum exhibition tentatively titled Bill Nye The Science Guy's Climate Research Lab, subtitle, Mission Possible: Reduce the CO2. The interactive show is anchored by science educator Bill Nye the Science Guy, is aimed towards children and families. It will explain the basic science behind climate change, and its potential effects on humans and the rest of the biosphere, while exploring some ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, both what we can do now, and advanced technologies that may someday play a role. After a run at Chabot, the exhibit is intended to travel to other U.S. cities. Several Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley staff are serving as advisors to Chabot's development team, including William Collins and Inez Fung of the Earth Sciences Division, the Energy Biosciences Institute's Susan Jenkins and Paul Willems, and EETD's Allan Chen. Please join the Chabot's exhibit development team to learn more about this project, and to provide your input on what their show might cover.
