If you will be in or around New York City, May 28-June 1, head on over to the first annual World Science Festival. The Big Apple is about to amplify the best of science while entertaining thousands in an effort to shed light on how scientific discovery and innovation shape modern life. The event is the brainchild of physicist Brian Green (aka Prince of String Theory) and spearheaded by the World Science Festival Foundation. It promises to feature the who’s who of pop science figures.
Great mission statement: To cultivate and sustain a general public informed by the content of science, inspired by its wonder, convinced of its value, and prepared to engage with its implications for the future.
So, go get engaged! And they’re looking for some volunteers. (Free T-shirts!)
