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 a passport, and are encouraged to collect stamps for participation in events throughout the year.
