The 2010 World Science Festival took place on June 2-June 6 in New York City. We offered a slate of exciting new programs and old favorites this year, all aimed at unlocking the beauty and complexity of science for everyone.

Science is transformed into art in this program that uses pigmented E. coli as a “living paint,” to create printed designs on paper. Under the guidance of Growing Impressions team Amy Chase Gulden and Kristin Baldwin, select New York City students were able to learn about microbiology as they spent the afternoon cultivating living designs of their own imagination. Throughout the program, the public is invited to visit the Museum’s Open Studio (sixth floor), to watch the designs, quite literally, emerge.
Participation by invitation only; public welcome to observe.
