Day 3 is packed chock-full of fascinating events for scientists at every level of expertise. The most advanced attendees will connect with leaders in their fields during World Science U for a Day. Future scientists from schools across New York City (and around the world, through the power of the internet) will join physicist Gabriela González of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration at Google’s New York headquarters for an inspiring conversation about what’s possible with a career in science.

Finally, WSF co-founder Brian Greene and a team of award-winning producers present “Light Falls”, the story of Albert Einstein’s electrifying journey toward one of the most beautiful ideas ever conceived—the General Theory of Relativity.

Here are four events you won’t want to miss:

1. World Science U for a Day: Triumphs and Mysteries of Gravity

The popular online courses step offline and into the real world for a full day of immersive lectures from the foremost experts in gravitational physics and a cosmology.

2. Pioneers in Science

Great minds inspire greatness in others, which is why the Pioneers in Science program gives high school students from around the globe rare access to some of the world’s most renowned scientists. This year students share what’s sure to be an inspiring conversation with a physicist and the LIGO spokesperson, Gabriela González. This event is also available in Spanish.

3. Stewards of the Earth: Hope for Our Planet

The renowned explorer Sylvia Earle joins Shahid Naeem, Jennifer Newell, Carl Safina, and Lynette Wallworth at the American Museum of Natural History for a wide-ranging discussion about solutions to the rapidly declining biodiversity on our planet.

4. Light Falls: Space, Time, and an Obsession of Einstein

Described by The New York Times as a “cerebral spectacle with a theatrical twist,” Light Falls tells the dramatic story of Albert Einstein’s electrifying journey toward one of the most beautiful ideas ever conceived—the General Theory of Relativity.
