World Science Festival

If you're in the New York City area next week and are interested in some cool science, check out some of the offerings at the World Science Festival. Now in its 11th year, the smart WSF folks really seem to have outdone themselves this time around. Some programs have a fee, others are free, but there's truly something for all ages.  
The annual World Science Festival was held last weekend in NYC and we were lucky enough to attend some of the events. One of the highlights was a panel conversation moderated by Carl Zimmer, talking to scientists about science and discussing the most pressing issues for today's scientific community. 
It's that time of year again - The World Science Festival is in town. Every year since 2008, the WSF has brought cutting edge science programs to the city. The events range from large ones, set in the grandeur of Lincoln Center to one-on-one marine biology lessons on a fishing pier while wearing a pair of waders. If you love science and are looking for something to do this weekend, then check out the website at to take a look at the 50 different events.
