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. 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. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Content is geared toward middle school students, but learners of all ages are welcome. Guests can arrive at any time between 1 and 4 pm.
Photography: On occasion, we photograph or video Saturday Science for promotional and archival purposes. When registering for the event at Jerome L. Greene Science Center, you give Columbia University in the City of New York the right to use you and your child's image for said purposes. We will never use your names, age or other identifying factors. If you prefer to opt out, please email the Zuckerman Institute before the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
