More than 628,000 people attended over 70 events that spanned six days and all five boroughs in New York City.
Luminaries from the arts and sciences opened the Festival with a star-studded celebration of the cosmos.
Over 200 participants tackled some of science’s toughest questions through main stage discussions and intimate salons.
Girls had the chance to tour women-run labs across New York City, while pioneering women in science led conversations about the future of space exploration and the preservation of our oceans.
Science in the Square advanced the climate change conversation at the crossroads of the world: Times Square.
Students and working biologists counted fish throughout the New York waterways.
Astronauts joined families in Brooklyn Bridge Park to reach beyond our known universe.
And over 1.1 million watched live programs online and added to the conversation, thanks in part to more than fifty WSF Live partners.
All of this was made possible thanks to a long list of incredible World Science Festival partners, sponsors, members, participants, volunteers, and the incredible community of people who joined us in person in New York and online around the globe. Thank you!
