Yes, people the Super Bowl is happening right here in Santa Clara and all of us at Anderson Behel are thrilled to have our town on the national scene for at least the next few weeks. Here is a list of some fun things to do here in Santa Clara during the Super Bowl 50 Celebration. We’ve selected events for non-football fans too, so check them out:

Imagine yourself in a space station, floating as you see the earth below. Attendees of the STEM Innovation Bowl will be able to don a virtual reality headset outfitted with a motion controller and for a couple minutes become an astronaut. This is one of the ten interactive exhibits at Santa Clara’s STEM Innovation Bowl, which will be held January 30, 2016 at the Central Park Library from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
As part of the Countdown to Kick-off, the event celebrates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with the theme “Experience from Afar.” Super Bowl 50 will be watched by millions of people on TVs and laptops streaming content, but what’s in store for future football games? The STEM Innovation Bowl will demonstrate the future of immersive technology and highlight virtual reality, augmented reality, telepresence robots, computer vision, gaming and Santa Clara’s new interactive map tool, MapSantaClara. Six presentations will delve into the technologies.
