About Exploring Your Universe

Exploring Your Universe was founded in 2009 by graduate students in UCLA’s Astronomy department, and is now organized by volunteer graduate students representing several UCLA departments. As the largest science outreach event on campus, this event is made possible by volunteers from student groups, departments, and faculty across all science disciplines. We are very grateful to our sponsors, who help support Exploring Your Universe and allow us to bring this event to our community free of charge.
