From May 27 through May 31, New York City will host the 8th annual World Science Festival. With dozens of programs, panels, experiments, and interactive workshops, the World Science Festival brings the building blocks of the universe to the general public.
Among those presenting will be Alan Alda and Festival co-founder Brian Greene, two impassioned communicators of science.
Alan Alda has spent much of the past two decades introducing people to science. The host of Scientific American Frontiers on PBS for 11 years, Alda is a visiting professor at and founding member of Stony Brook University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science. At this year’s Festival, he will host the finals of his annual “Flame Challenge,” where he asks scientists to explain difficult, yet common, concepts to 11-year-olds.
See his program: What is Sleep? on May 31 at 1pm.
Brian Greene is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and the bestselling author of The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos, and The Hidden Reality. The Washington Post described him as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.” In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, Greene will present two programs,Light Falls and Reality Since Einstein.
See his programs: Light Falls on May 27 and 28 at 8pm and Reality Since Einstein on May 30 at 8pm.
