DON'T MISS!: BLINDED BY SCIENCE
The Knicks might still be in the playoffs if they had paid more attention in science class. The physics of basketball is just one of the topics touched on in the fifth annual World Science Festival, unfolding around town through Sunday.
Families are invited to look at the science behind such topics as bridge building and perfume making. And yes, there will be robots.
“Every kid starts out being a scientist,” says event president and co-founder Tracy Day. “They’re curious. They want to know things.”
Tomorrow’s events at Brooklyn Bridge Park are geared toward natural sciences, and end with an 8 p.m. star-gazing party — telescopes included. Also tomorrow, Innovation Square at the NYU-Poly campus in Downtown Brooklyn will focus on robotics and gaming. It all wraps up Sunday in Washington Square Park with the Ultimate Science Street Fair, featuring square-wheeled tricycle rides, more robots and hoops science. Details at worldsciencefestival.com
