About Exploring Your Universe


Exploring Your Universe is an annual science festival held on the campus of UCLA. Founded in 2009 by graduate students in UCLA’s Astronomy Division, the event is still organized by graduate students and is now the largest science outreach event on campus with over 7,000 guests and participation from student groups, departments, and faculty across all science disciplines.

Exploring Your Universe is made possible by the hard work of our volunteers in our organizing committee and participating groups. We are very grateful of our sponsors, who help support Exploring Your Universe and allow us to bring this event to our community free of charge.
