Bay Area Science Festival

General Information about the festival: http://www.bayareascience.org/festival/

There are (at least) three main types of events we might consider:

- A public forum/seminar (See 'wonder dialogues',  we have a hold on the David Brower Center in Berkeley - 180 person capacity - for Nov 1st)

- A hand-on carnival-style event with hands-on activities/demos (See 'Discovery Days' - a huge carnival being run at AT&T park on Nov 6th) - A science cafe - an informal discussion with a scientist at a bar/cafe (See the 'science pub crawl' being run on Nov 4th)

I'd like to first explore a public forum event, as we have to act quickly on this if we'd like to keep the date/space. At the last working group meeting there was some ideas about how to make a forum more fun and interactive than a normal lecture format, such as making it into a 'game show'.

Please use the space below to suggest speakers, topics and formats (please list your name alongside)!

Possible Speakers

-Drew Endy (Megan P) -Jay Keasling (can't make it)

Possible Topics/Framings

-Life as we don't know it (Megan) -The game of (new) life (Megan) -Design your own microbe (Megan) -Creating life: What can we do? What should we do? (Megan)

Possible Formats

- Moderated panel discussion between scientists, ethicists, news people, govt officials / FBI ? (Megan)
