World Science Festival

Shhh: Your kids might actually learn something while having fun at this five-day educational celebration. Prominent minds from around the world will unite to discuss the brain, time, the origins of the universe and more. This year's fest will include a special series of events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Einstein's theory of relativity. On Sunday, May 31, attend the Ultimate Science Street Fair in Washington Square Park for loads of fun, free demos and workshops, where kiddos will learn about extreme weather, robotics and outer space. Visit www.worldsciencefestival.com for a full list of events, including the Flame Challenge, where scientists compete to communicate complex topics so that an 11-year-old would understand them (this year the prompt asks, "What is sleep?"), the Cool Jobs panel ($30), special apprentice programs ($30) and Stargazing. Hurry, tickets for these events sell out quickly! All ages.
