SATURDAY, JUNE 3 l 17 LOCATIONS IN NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY
- New York’s waterways are wilder than you think. Strap on a pair of waders, cast a net, and see what types of marine life you can find—from Lemon Creek in Staten Island to the shores of Fort Washington Park. Join top ecologists and biologists to discover the underwater world in New York’s backyard.
SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 7:00 PM–11:00 PM l BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK, PIER 1
- Step up to a world-class telescope (or bring your own) for an up-close look at the moon, Jupiter, and beyond. Then, take part in the Umbrella Project, a participatory experiment developed by MIT and Pilobolus. Armed with an LED-lighted umbrella, create your own exploding stars and constellations, along with physicists and astronomers in a larger-than-life celebration of our universe.
SUNDAY, JUNE 4, 10:00 AM–6:00 PM l NYU KIMMEL CENTER
- Ride a hovercraft, control an underwater rover, and face off with virtual reality dinosaurs. This is Ultimate Science Sunday, an action-packed day of robots, catapults, wind tunnels, telescopes, and so much more! Explore floors of interactive exhibits, demonstrations, and games during this immersive science event that you won’t want to miss.
