The Minds of Today Creating Solutions for Tomorrow


Event Tickets

April 29, 2024 - The City Club of San Francisco

Celebrate the minds of today creating solutions for tomorrow! 

Join us on Monday, April 29, 2024 from 6:00 - 9:30 pm at The City Club, San Francisco, an art deco jewel in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district.

Supernova is ARCS Foundation Northern California Chapter’s major annual event supporting the ARCS mission to advance science by celebrating ARCS Scholars as emerging scientists, raising the visibility of their cutting-edge research, and providing them with public speaking opportunities. 

Guests will enjoy a dinner-buffet celebration with delectable passed hors d'oeuvres, hearty finger foods, and a lovely selection of wine, while mingling with scholars, ARCS members and friends; admiring the club's original Diego Rivera mural; and reveling in the club's art deco ambiance. There will also be a very special ‘scholar impact’ moment.

Curious minds will enjoy engaging with scholars and their research during the poster sessions; attending one or both of the intriguing expert-moderated roundtable discussions featuring ARCS Scholar panelists;  playing Scholar BINGO (prizes awarded!).

The 84 ARCS NCC Scholars for the current academic year are US citizens selected from 100 departments at our seven partner universities: San Francisco State University, Stanford University, and the University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Merced, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz.
