Remember science class? Beakers, Bunsen burners and the dreaded dead frog? I remember, so much so in fact, that I think science class seriously maimed me for a future in the sciences. I could have been a scientific genius.
If you’re not bitter like I am (I’m not, really) and want to shake up your scientific sensibilities, go to the World Science Festival, from June 10 to the 14th at different venues throughout New York City. From philosophical discussion about emptiness, to brain research, the future of robots, to portrait science of the human face to an all-day festival in Washington Square Park, there is something that will speak to you and make you wonder about the world.
Some programs are already sold out, but there are still a lot of events to attend, at reasonable prices to boot. They give discounts for students. See event schedule here.
