About Me


Hello, I’m Sarah Seiter!  I’m a curator and technologist living and working in Oakland, California.  I believe that science can be a force for optimism, equity and social change for communities everywhere.  I use collaborative design and community engagement to create exhibitions and experiences that are personal, relevant, and social.   

I’m currently the Associate Curator of Natural Sciences at the Oakland Museum of California.  My recent exhibition work there has included Altered State: Marijuana in California, Bees: Tiny Insect, Big Impact, and the upcoming Take Root: Oakland Grows Food. Our exhibitions have been featured on NPR, in the San Francisco Chronicle, and The Guardian.

I also work on civic tech projects, including OpenDisclosure, a campaign finance transparency app.
