The World Science Festival is underway this weekend in New York City:
From deep space to the brain‘s inner recesses, World Science Festival 2015 turns Washington Square Park into an outdoor lab celebrating the fascinating science that shapes our lives. It’s a full day of hands-on activities, interactive experiments, installations, and demonstrations. Meet scientists and astronauts, and enjoy live performances. Run through our Mars rover obstacle course, and learn how scientists search for life on other planets. Suit up and train like an astronaut while suspended in the air. Be a robot—or drive one. Build and launch rockets. And wire up your brain to use its electric signals to fly a helicopter or tune into a friend’s brain. It’s a day of science your family will never forget.
