Enjoy creepy crawlers–human and non-human–at the Exploratorium’s Halloween Haunts and Happenings! See giant insects, tarantulas, blood-sucking leeches, maggots and much more. Dress up in your Halloween costume and join a variety of spine-tingling activities. Decorate a sugar skull, creep through a Graveyard of Dead Science Ideas and admire predatory plants in the Garden of Carnivorous Plants. Creep into the McBean Theater to see spooky and silly animation from the 1930s to the 1950s, including Betty Boop’s Halloween Party (1933), Bugs Bunny in an evil scientist’s castle in Water, Water Every Hare (1952), and Felix the Cat haunted by spooky pranks in Switches Witches (1928). There is a small fee for the sugar skull making, but otherwise all activities are included in admission to the Exploratorium.

The first annual Bay Area Science Festival (www.bayareascience.org)—October 29-November 6, 2011—brings together an unprecedented brain trust of the region’s scientific and educational partners to produce one of the largest science-based events ever held in the United States. Featuring more than 100 fun, interactive science and technology events at local venues from Oakland to Orinda, Santa Rosa to San Mateo, San Francisco to San Jose, the Bay Area Science Festival includes provocative lectures, hands-on activities, exhibitions, tours of cutting-edge facilities, guided hikes and neighborhood stargazing. Events, dates and times are subject to change.
