Join us for Husky Day in L.A.!

The afternoon kicks off with a visit to the California Science Center's new exhibit, Endeavour: The California Story, which illustrates the NASA shuttle program's connection to California and displays artifacts that flew aboard Endeavour. Immediately following, we will enter the Samuel Oschin Pavilion to see the shuttle up close. Learn more about the exhibit experience.

NASA engineer Bobak Ferdowsi, B.S., Engineering ’01, will join us at the Radisson Midtown Hotel at USC to share an insider’s perspective on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Project. A social hour will follow. Listen to Bobak's appearance on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!"

In the evening, UW alumni and fans will cheer on Husky Men’s Basketball as they take on the USC Trojans at the Galen Center.
