7:23 am
7:24 am
rage, there was a place in san francisco that embodie long before maker fairs and hacker spaces were all the rage, there was a place in san francisco that embodied those ideals. over the past 25 years, thousands of young people have passed through its doors and been introduced to the wonder of science. gavin thomas has an inside look at the place and the man behind it in this morning's bay area proud. >> dan does not have an advanced degree in science. he's never gone to school to be a teacher either. you would think that would hold someone back from being a science teacher. not, dan says, when you waument

to teach science the way he does. if we told you there was treasure hidden under san francisco's mission high school, what do you imagine it would look like? well, probably not this. or this. >> how are you guys? >> and certainly not him. >> good. remember my name? dan. >> still, for the past 25 years, dan has been the man behind the mission science workshop. an absolute hidden treasure of science education and exploration. >> it's called oxygen. >> the workshop was born a few blocks away a few decades ago in dan's garage. while he tinkered with electronics, he would leave the door open, and neighborhood kids would stop by. >> started, you know, finding out how much fun it was to explain this stuff. i was excited about it, and they were like, it's amazing, and they started bringing rocks to my garage, and i had all this crazy stuff. i started doing all this --
7:26 am
because they were like, this was the hottest place on the block. >> what is that? >> dan immediatelied there was a need for hands-on science learning. and sought a bigger home for his workshop. >> science is really not about believing what somebody like me says. it's about doing experiments and believing in the experiments. do you see the difference? >> he teaches science to students from more than 30 different schools and the workshop is regularly open to the public for free. >> it won't hurt you but it's kind of unant. >> the rare kind of place for kids, one where it's okay to break stuff. >> something completely different that we typically wouldn't be able to do in the classroom. >> marisol first came to the workshop when she was in elementary school. she's now working toward a career in osteologist, the study of bone. something inspired by her time with dan. dan's latest project is assembling a horse skeleton, one that can be taken apart and put
7:27 am
together just like a puzzle. he's already done the same thing with a whale. >> the oxygen did not disappear -- >> dan says while the work helps focus young people who don't have much, this is the kind of experience every child could benefit from. a chance to uncover the hidden treasures of science with their very own hands. the mission science workshop has been so successful, a couple years ago, they opened up another branch in the excelsior district. >> still to come on today in the bay, 000 march in the bay area with a strong message to president trump on earth day. also, millions of dollars collected. zero deliveries made. the bay area drone company that's come under fire for ignoring customer requests for refunds. take a live look outside......

7:32 am
home. they were forced to fight the flames from ladders because of concerns about the roof collapsing. firefighters say insmoke was so bad, they had to tell people to shelter in place. >> we went door to door and just knocked on doors to make sure if anybody was inside to tell them to stay inside, keep the windows shut because it was heavy smoke early on. >> fire engines stayed to monitor the scene for several hours making sure there were no hot spots. >> new this morning, a deadly shooting near california state university east bay. hayward police say it happened after 8:00 on fielding drive, a street off college heights park. officers say when they arrived, they found a 21-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. he was taken to a hospital but he died a short time later. according to investigators, they don't have any suspects in custody and no leads right now in this case. this is hayward's second homicide of the year. >> science in action. thousands of people turned out across the bay area to participate in the march for science. they joined demonstrators in

cities all around the country, many of whom denounced president trump's policies. today in the bay's christie smith reports. >> a rally at justin herman plaza true thousands of people ahead of the march for science. adam savage, former co-host of myth busters, came to speak. >> when we see politicians move away from the best data towards their own biases, that's not policy that benefits everyone. that's policy that benefits the few. >> organizers say scientists were moved to cutting the epa, climate research whatsoever, eliminating s.t.e.m. education investment in our schools, those are direct threats to our future. >> as the rally turned to a march, many carries signs about science and concerns about president trump's views on climate change and proposed science. >> funding for so many areas of science to me is just completely
7:34 am
unacceptable. for me, the science piece is important, but i'm going to be at every demonstration i can possibly make it to. i just can't stand what's happening in this country. >> in an earth day statement, president trump said my administration is committed to advancing scientific research that leads to a better understanding of our environment and of environmental risks. >> science matters. science is real. it's more important than politics. it's more important. the world is heating up. we need to do something. >> christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> nbc bay area responds to several consumers who share the same predicament. they each spent hundreds of dollars to get a new drone before it hit the mass market. they have been left empty-handed after waiting for as long as two years. they turned to answers and refunds. here is chris chmura. >> this is about a high-flying
7:35 am
dream thatted and burned, after, that is, attracting tens of millions in preorders that have never and will never be filled. this 2015 video touts the lily camera, a clever twist on the drone. lily, you see, follows its subject and records life from above. tech consulant stewart freeman saw lily online and pulled out his credit card to land one six months before everybody else. >> they got me where they wanted me. >> lily was advertised as autonomous and water proof as well. this is the brain child of two berkeley alums. their san francisco company blanketed social media, offered presales at a discount, and collected more than $30 million. financial feat lily touted to a website tech crunch. >> $30 million. >> $34 million.
7:36 am
>> 2015. >> that's about 60,000 units. >> that's a lot of units. >> they raked in more than $38 million from 61,450 buyers in 80 countries. >> but lily repeatedly pushed back its delivery date. leaving customers to wonder whether this drone-making start-up would ever get off the ground. >> when i initially made my purchase i was fully aware that it would be six months before i received it, we're sitting now just about two years since i purchased it. >> still don't have it? >> that's right. >> faced with delays and excuses, thousands of fed-up lily customers requested refunds and got them. including one who enlisted a response team at our nbc sister station in washington, d.c. >> never suspected it was going to take 18 months. >> but people like stewart and kieren and james and gobs of others who sounded off on social media did not get refunds.
7:37 am
>> never got responded to. >> stewart and others turned to us for help. we made multiple requests on their behalf. we asked where the $38 million went and whether customers would get their money back. but lily's response has equaled the numbers of drones it delivered, zero. the outlook was bad. then the situation got worse. the san francisco district attorney sued lily accusing it of false advertising and misleading representation. the suit claims lily's promotional videos weren't actually shot with a lily. some footage was allegedly shot by a competitor's drone, and according to the suit, lily failed to make any disclaimers regarding the true source of the video footage. the d.a. accuses lily of knowing what it was doing was wrong. the suit cites an internal e-mail that lily's cofounder sent saying we should be extremely careful if we decide to lie publicly. a lily lawyer declined to comment on the suit. stewart is stunned by all this.
7:38 am
>> i guess emotionally it's nice to see that there is some legal action taken. >> a source close to lily robotics tells nbc bay area the company's staff has dwindled from 30 people down to just four. the two co-founders plus two new hired people whose sole job is to shut down the company records show lily robotics has now filed for bankruptcy. a chapter 11 is often a bad omen for consumers, but this one right might offer hope. we found the company has told the court it has $18.7 million remaining. the seam search showed 31,800 customers awaiting refunds. that would average out to $588 per person, about the same amount stewart paid. lily's bankruptcy attorney told us the company has requested court approvals to bring full refunds to its customers. the court will sort out who lily owes and how much. it will then decide if consumers like stewart stand at the front of the line to get paid or the
7:39 am
back. >> the crazy thing about it right now is i have no idea whether it's a mad scramble. >> the d.a. is moving forward with its civil suit even though the company has filed for bankruptcy. for consumers who are due refunds, lily says it knows who you are, but its bankruptcy attorney told me if you moved in the past two years, you need to update your details to get your money back. there's a forum online. we have added a link to that's also where you can tip us off to other consumer stories or if you prefer to call, the number is 888-996-tips. today in the bay returns after a short break. coming up, the warriors went to portland short-handed for game three of their series against the trail blazers, and kevin durant wasn't the only important member of the team missing. while head coach steve kerr never left his hotel room. not only were the warriors
7:40 am
7:41 am
missing three players from
7:42 am
their game 3 matchup against the portland tr not only were the warriors missing three players from their game three matchup against the trail blazers last night, including kevin durant, they were also without head coach steve kerr for what the team called an illness. mike brown serving as acting head coach for the night. the ws were down by as many as 17. that changed late in the third quarter. this break hammer by andre iguodala ties the game, and then draymond green lobs it up to mcgee for the lead. steph curry made big shots down the stretch and the warriors take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. they win 119-113. >> there are reports that steve kerr has been fighting an unknown illness for several days. his availability for tomorrow night's game four is not clear. well, back here in the bay area, it was a different story for the sharks as they tried to stave off elimination alt the s.a.p. center. the oilers took a 2-0 lead into
7:43 am
the third series. the sharks cut it to one, and then joe pavelski almost ties it. he hit the crossbar. that was it, as close as it would get. the oilers clinched the win with an empty-netter and the sharks season comes to a close. they lose 3-2. today in the bay is back in two minutes. coming up, will she or won't she? dianne feinstein will become the state's longest runner senator if she runs and wins re-election in 2018. larry gerston joins us to give us a look at the candidates most likely to run. dianne feinstein has been a u.s.
7:44 am
7:45 am
senator since 1992. if she is elected to -- and completes-- a sixth term next dianne feinstein has been a senator since 1992. if she's elected to and completes a sixth term next year, feinstein will become the longest serving u.s. senator in california history. yet there is some uncertainty whether she will run and if she would win. larry gerston joins us this morning. feinstein is really an institution in california,
7:46 am
larry. >> she is, and for good reason. she's got quite a pedigree, if you will. dianne feinstein is a key member of the u.s. senate by virtue of her seniority and her appointment to select committees. the appropriations committee which determines spending commitments, the judiciary committee where she's the ranking member and opposed recent supreme court nominee neil gorsuch. what a combination. she's also been a leading advocate for women's rights, gun control, and long-standing opponent of torture of suspected terrorists. feinstein is the longest serving and old member of the u.s. senate, which really speaks volumes for her experience. and knowledge of the political process. yes, an institution, and she is a pro. >> all around, many would agree she has a stellar record. yet, some are questioning whether or not she will run next year. what's behind the speculation? >> three factors come into play
7:47 am
here. look, her health, which was highlighted a few weeks ago when she rsked a pacemaker. her position as a democrat, which these days might be too conservative, especially for environmentalists in a state where the issue of environmentalism looms large and activism. and her age. feinstein is 83 years old. some people are worried about her seeking and completing another six-year term. check out the results from the university of california institute of governmental studies poll released earlier this month. look, if you look at what's going on, if you don't mention her name, it's almost even. once her age is cited, it's a whole other story. her popularity dropped considerably as a potential candidate for the senate. combined, these three factors could cause trouble. >> given her stature in the state and in the nation, really, who could challenge her? >> yeah, as i understand right now, a few democrats of any
7:48 am
notoriety would oppose her if she runs. republicans would be pressed to take her on in the overwhelmingly blue state. you have to think that. but if she does, there are a lot of things to think about. >> you talked about some of the weaknesses, let's call them. who might side to run then? >> let's look into this. some possible democratic candidates include representative jackie speier, right from san mateo county. eric garcetti, and adam schiff, who by the way, has gained some massive notoriety as the ranking member of the house intelligence committee currently examining alleged ties between the trump inner circle and the russian operatives. great exposer for him. >> what does the republican party look like among gop candidates, who are you talking about that might be available? >> it's a short list, but among republicans, swearinger has high

name recognition, but once again, remember, this is a pretty blue state. >> any predictions from crystal ball, larry? >> we know that broke a long time ago. but here's what we might look for in the coming months. feinstein's fund-raising efforts. how active will they be over the coming months. noises from potential opponents. will there be any exploratory committees. that's usually a first step, and feinstein health as well as that of her husband, richard blum, who also has his own health issues. this is stucky stuff. power and political office is necessary to get things done. it's also intoxicating. and sometimes an elected official has a hard time stepping down because of a vacuum that might be left in his or her place, and frankly, trying to figure out where he or she goes on for the rest of their life. several years ago, when u.s. supreme courts thurgood marshall
7:50 am
was asked while he was retiring from office, he answered candidly, because i'm old. that's what he said. fair or not, age may be a consideration for feinstein. and if that's the case, the would-be challengers in the coming months to come might have something to think about. how important is all this? that remains to be seen. >> as they say, age is just a number. it will be interesting to watch and see how this plays out and what her decision will be. >> she would be 90 years old if she completes a sixth term. >> that's incredible to think about. >> quite a record, too. >> absolutely. thank you. well, stay with us. today in the bay is back just after the short break. life lessons in the great outdoors. the unique outing that paired law enforcement officers with hundreds of kids. >> and we're looking forward to a very nice sunday. cool temps, but we're tracking showers on the way, and when can the bay area see a chance for some 80s in the forecast? i'll have that answer coming up right after the break.

expected to be a very nice one, but definitely cooler. seasonable temps in the upper 50s and lower 60s along the coastline. high of about 60 in san francisco. the north bay expecting highs in the upper 60s. nappy, about 70 degrees. livermore, 65, and san jose, 68. now, are tracking a flow coming up from the north that's going to bring weaker disturbances in towards the middle of the work week. today, nothing short of beautiful weather. if you're heading over to the oakland a's game, we're expecting a lot of sunshine, perfect weather for a baseball game and a baseball cap. by about 3:00, 64 degrees, and i know first pitch is at about 1:05. 62 degrees. the only thing we have to look out for is a light breeze with winds from the west between 15 and 20-plus miles per hour. that might be a little bit of an issue, but the winds aren't expected to pick up beyond that. we should be okay. if you're heading over to sonoma or napa, the temps are also going to be pretty nice. 59 degrees by 11:00. forward to 2:00, 62 degrees.
7:55 am
we are expecting to see an increase in cloud cover in the napa area. because of the system that we are tracking. santa cruz, the beach is also temps in the upper 50s and 60s. we'll see a little cloud cover and overcast skies as well. expect the winds to pick up just a bit along the coastline. especially later on in the afternoon. so definitely keep in mind that pollen report for today. seeing tree, pollen count. weeds, grass, and mold. a low pollen count, and hopefully weaker disturbance coming in from the north, hopefully that helps clear out some of the pollen. doppler radar, you can see the northerly flow sitting just offshore. and that is expected to bring a chance of a few scattered showers, but they're mainly going to be sticking off to the north bay. we're not expecting widespread showers. if you look monday by 1:30, we seeing an increase in cloud cover and you can see that system just up north, fast forward to 5:30, we notice the
7:56 am
