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. The 2015 lineup will feature more than 50 events, including mainstage programs and those on a more intimate scale where top scientists discuss big ideas. Festivalgoers can also look forward to Street Science on June 5, when the festival takes over Washington Square Park with science-related activities, demonstrations, live shows and experiments. Check for more details on this year's schedule of events.
