World Science Festival

Various Locations



NYCGO Logo Launched in 2008 as a vehicle for informing and inspiring the general public, the WSF brings together a just-right mix of star power, from various disciplines of science and further-flung fields (Edward O. Wilson, Stephen Hawking, Oliver Sacks, Daniel Dennett, Philip Glass and Charlie Kaufman have all appeared in past years) for a tasty smorgasbord of panel discussions, lectures, film screenings and other activities, some of them hands-on. Last year's subjects—the drama of quantum mechanics, the secrets of whales, the conundrum of consciousness—spanned the spectrum. Check for updates on this year's schedule of events.
