World Science Festival

Saturday, June 4th
11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm

The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows a broad general audience to engage with scientific discoveries. Through discussions, debates, theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, intimate salons, and major outdoor experiences, the Festival takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and premier performing arts venues of New York City and beyond.

We will live stream three of the programs in our auditorium on Saturday, June 4th for visitors to view.
