The Air District created the Spare the Air program to educate residents about air pollution, to encourage actions to improve air quality in the Bay Area, and to provide advance notice when air quality is expected to be unhealthy. Residents are encouraged to reduce pollution by making clean air choices every day such as walking and biking, taking transit, telecommuting or carpooling instead of driving alone.

Center for Biological Diversity
At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We are Counter Culture Labs, a community of scientists, tinkerers, biotech professionals, hackers, and citizen scientists who have banded together to create an open community lab — a hackerspace for DIY biology and citizen science. Biology is the technology of the 21st century, and has the potential to affect our lives as much as or more than computers did in the 20th century. Our goal is to demystify and democratize this technology, putting tools into the hands of those who want to learn.

NeuroEducate
NeuroEducate has three aims: research, education, and technology. We conduct neuroscience research outside of the lab (especially by going into crowds). We educate research participants by enabling people to see their own brain activity in real time (something we call Neuroportraits). We develop low cost, mobile neurotechnologies for use at home (and we empower people to build their own neurohacking tools, too!).

San Francisco 49ers
49ers Edu provides free and accessible learning opportunities to students, teachers, and families throughout the greater Bay Area. Using football as a platform for programs like the STEAM Education Field Trip, Educator Professional Development, and 49ers Family Learning, communities learn how ever-present STEAM is to K-8 education and the future of our workforce. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, it is important to expose students to STEAM at an early age and equip parents and teachers with the tools to foster aptitude in these subjects. In the 2017-18 school year, 49ers Edu plans to serve over 60,000 participants from over 400 schools with 61% of participants being from a Title-1 designated school. Recognizing that transportation costs are also a barrier of entry for schools, 49er Edu also provides free transportation subsidy. At the end of the school year, 49ers Edu will have provided 59% of attendees transportation to and from the 49ers STEAM Education Field Trip.

The CLEAR Project
The CLEAR Project (Communication, Literacy & Education for Agricultural Research) is composed of a group of young scientists at the University of California, Berkeley who want to find better ways to communicate science at the forefront of discovery. Our goal is communicating fact-based information grounded in scientific evidence to feed the growing world population, address the new demands of the changing climate, and decrease our environmental footprint, among other popular public science topics. These issues require conversations between scientists, the public and policy-makers and our aim is to facilitate these crucial discussions through public-facing media, events and meetings.

The Tech Museum of Innovation
The Tech Museum of Innovation is a family-friendly interactive science and technology center located in the heart of downtown San Jose, California. It has become a landmark for visitors seeking a glimpse of the most inventive place on Earth — Silicon Valley. Thanks to the vision of this institution’s leadership and unwavering support from staff members, volunteers, donors and patrons, The Tech has grown to be far more than just a museum. It is a valued community resource for education and innovation, one that in 2015 was awarded the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the highest honor a United States museum can achieve. The Tech Museum of Innovation's mission is to inspire to inspire the innovator in everyone.

UCSF WISDOM Study
The WISDOM Study is enrolling 100,000 women in California between the ages of 40 and 74 who have NOT had breast cancer, to determine if a personalized approach to breast cancer screening is safer and more effective at finding cancers relevant to health than traditional annual mammography screening. A personalized approach means basing the screening schedule and the mode of screening on each individual woman's risk factors such as genetics, breast density, family history, age, history of previous breast health issues, etc. The study is done completely online from the comfort of your own couch and involves answering health questionnaires. Plus the women who are randomized to the "personal screening" group, receive a genetics (saliva) test at their home which they mail back postage prepaid. It's Simple, it's Safe and it's Scientific. The WISDOM Movement's goal is to end the confusion that surrounds mammograms while determining the best approach to breast screening through science. This results of this study will help women throughout America and future generations of women by reducing false positive results, extra call backs, and unneeded invasive biopsies and treatment, while still finding cancers early when they are most treatable. Women benefit by becoming empowered to learn about their own level of risk and if necessary, take steps to prevent the disease. Another benefit is when they join they get access to Mammosphere, a digital tool that enables them to securely gather store and share all their breast health images and reports for life.
