Saturday Science

Saturday Science - Home Edition 

We have made a special edition of Saturday Science for you to enjoy at home this holiday season! Join us throughout November for Saturday Science Home Edition.

COVID-19 update

We have cancelled in-person Saturday Science for the rest of 2020 in compliance with public health guidelines. The well-being of our community remains a top priority. We will keep you informed about future Saturday Science events as we monitor the situation.

Nurturing a love of science at a monthly event for families and community groups

We invite families and community groups to explore the workings of the brain through hands-on activities and unique scientific resources. Our activities and demonstrations are designed to be engaging and informative, and as launching points for further exploration, reflection and discovery. Learners of all ages join scientists in the Zuckerman Institute’s Education Lab, located at 609 West 129th Street.

Saturday Science events are held monthly through the school year. Themes and materials change monthly to incorporate the wide ranging topics in neuroscience and the latest discoveries coming from Zuckerman Institute labs. Students attending Saturday Science events receive an activity book, and are encouraged to collect stamps in their books for participation in events throughout the year.
