Quest Invites Everyone to Embark on a Journey of Science Exploration
Our future science center will be a place where everyone is encouraged to "question,” “understand,” and “explore” science and technology — so we’ve changed our name to Quest. The Livermore Science and Society Center unveiled its new name on December 19, after a series of teaser ads designed to spark curiosity and excite the community about our plans to be in the new Stockmen’s Park in downtown Livermore.

Events Reach 3000 People in 2019
With our mobile pop-up exhibits, we’ve been bringing our vision for science education to life. Since 2018, we've sparked curiosity for more than 3000 local residents who had fun learning about water and wind with us. Volunteer scientists and engineers encouraged everyone to experiment and find solutions at 12 events in the Tri-Valley and beyond, including the Livermore Innovation Fair and the Bay Area Science Festival.
CO2 Monitoring –
First Community Science Project Kicks Off
Quest has launched its first community science project called Expedition CO2 – engaging students, educators and scientists in a real-world learning and data gathering journey.

Quest community science projects are designed to build a greater understanding of how science impacts our lives and provide opportunities to learn and practice practical skills. Participants in the CO2 project will learn about microprocessors and sensor assembly as well as how to organize complex projects and team effectively with diverse peer groups and volunteers from our local communities.
Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Expedition CO2 is aimed at providing useful scientific data for the Tri-Valley region regarding climate change and how human activity relates to greenhouse gas emissions, specifically CO2.
