What is life like on Mars? How can coding teach me about communication? What endangered species live in California? How does plastic end up in our ocean and what can I do about it?  What does physics have to do with basketball? How are we connected to cold-blooded creatures?  What is inside of a black hole? Find out the answers to these questions and more about the exciting fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the Clippers SciFest SoCal!
