Light up the One World Trade Center with Bill Nye, The Science Guy

Jennifer P

This is every science-lover’s dream come true! In honor of the 100th birthday centennial of the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation wants you to party like it’s 1993 with Bill Nye, The Science Guy—and other awesome guests—at Brooklyn Bridge Park.


The outdoor bash (Monday 22) is bursting with great acts and live entertainment, including a DJ set by Questlove, a surprise musical performance, family-friendly games like corn hole and free ice cream courtesy of Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. 

Best of all, New Yorkers will be able to control the One World Trade Center’s spire, and change the color of the lights via a giant digital circuit board. Disclaimer: We're not entirely sure how Nye is able to achieve this from Brooklyn Bridge Park, but we do know that it involves SCIENCE

The celebration kicks off with free ice cream at 1pm on Monday 22 (bring the kiddies!), but make sure to arrive promptly at 5:45pm to check out the surprise musical performance followed by the science experiment and DJ Questlove.
