Sunday, December 13, 2015, as a part of the American Geophysical Union Annual Meeting, the Exploration Station was held in San Francisco at the Moscone Center South Building.  Exploration Station is a program of activities that gives the public and AGU Earth and space scientists who are education/outreach professionals a chance to interact in San Francisco.

NCAS Fellows Megan Payne Lataille, Shadya Sanders, and Daniel Yeager shared their scientific expertise with the families that attended the exhibit, with atmospheric science activities.  Some of the demonstrations included:

* Electrostatic Wands, which demonstrated forces, and the properties of electric forces.

*Acoustic Waves, which showed the properties of sound waves, resonance, how it works, and the results of constructive interference.

*Vertical Fluid Tank, which demonstrated concepts about the density of fluids, vertical layering of different densities, and atmospheric frontal systems.

The San Francisco community was invited to the free exhibits at the Exploration Station, and science fun was enjoyed by all!
