City of Science

City of Science

Walk on water. Blast balls into orbit. Defy gravity. The World Science Festival and Con Edison invite people of all ages to explore City of Science, a buzzing mini-metropolis of action and fun. The wondrous properties of science, technology, engineering, and math come to life with interactive demonstrations and hands-on activities across all of New York City’s five boroughs. This FREE event is open to all ages.
