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

Saturday Science is a hands-on brain science event series for students, families and local community groups hosted by the Zuckerman Institute in partnership with BioBus and Columbia University scientists and students. Events run approximately monthly throughout the school year and are themed to reflect the wide range of topics and discoveries in neuroscience. Children of all ages are invited to participate in engaging and informative activities to learn about the mind and its mysteries.
 

Students, families, and community groups are invited to join scientists at the Zuckerman Institute to explore the workings of the brain through hand-on activities and unique scientific resources. Activities and demonstrations are designed to be engaging and informative, and as launching points for further exploration, reflection, and discovery.
 

Events are free and open to the public. Content is geared toward middle school students, but learners of all ages are welcome.
