Looks like readers Kjerstin Wood and Laura Szkolar Sienkiewicz had a lovely evening at Pacific Science Center’s Theory summer bash on July 27. 🎉

“I live down the street and forget what a fun place it is to visit,” Kjerstin told us. “[It] reminded me that I shouldn’t take gems that like for granted! Especially with all the change happening here!” 💕
