Heads up, readers: The World Science Festival is coming to New York City! From May 29th through June 2nd, New York City will be host to a variety of events designed to make science accessible to a larger audience.

While some events do require a ticket, many are free, including a science fair done street-style planned for Washington Square Park which promises lots of hands-on events for visitors of all ages. (Registration is recommended so you'll receive updates, schedules, and maps as the event draws nearer.)

Other events include talks on whales, nanoscience, consciousness, time, and art. As well, robotics and 3D printer demos.

You can view the full line up of events and purchase tickets here. Hope to see you there.
