**Dear community members,

We would like to share an update about campus events and COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We have suspended Saturday Science for March 14 in compliance with Columbia University's recommendation to minimize non-essential events that involve large groups of people for the next 30 days. 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. Updates on Columbia University's guidance regarding COVID-19 response and campus operations can be found here.**

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.

You have a mind to discover. Join us!

This event is free and open to the public. Registration recommended. Please register now to guarantee entrance.

Tickets are limited, so please only register if you plan on attending! If you register but cannot attend, we ask that you release your tickets in a timely fashion so another young scientist has the opportunity to join us.
