Step into Discovery


Saturday, April 12, 2014



On April 12, 2014 the Salk Institute will open its doors for the second annual Step into Discovery event. Last year’s inaugural event was a resounding success that drew over a thousand participants to the campus.

The community is invited to partake in the fun: The Walk for Salk, a panoramic 5K, along a scenic Torrey Pines route.

5K Walk for Salk Fees:
General Registration: $35.00
Kids (Under 12): No Fees


Pre-registration for Walk for Salk is now closed. You may register for Walk for Salk in person on April 12, 2014 starting at 8:00 a.m.

All Explore Salk lab tours are now full.



After the walk, visitors will enjoy the Explore Salk programs that offer exclusive, behind-the-scenes tours of the very labs where tomorrow’s cures are being developed. Salk scientists, some of the most highly acclaimed researchers in the world, will be on hand to discuss up-to-the minute discoveries and answer questions. The courtyard will be filled with many informational booths and hands-on activities for children and adults, including presentations by the Salk Education Outreach program.
