This inaugural event sought to engage Bay Area residents in a region-wide celebration of its scientific wonders, resources, and opportunities by exploring the role of science, engineering, and technology locally and in the world.
The Green Ninja is a climate-action superhero who fights global warming by inspiring informed personal action. A series of webisodes, written and produced by SJSU student/faculty teams, highlight the adventures of the Green Ninja as he negotiates some of the trickiest areas in climate science.
The meteorology and climate science, animation/illustration, and TV, radio, film and theatre collaborated to bring the Green Ninja to life. At the festival, he and his team met participants and staffed a table where they played a carbon game.
