The 2009 World Science Festival will be held in New York City from June 10-14, 2009. Last year's inaugural event included a fun array of sold-out Youth & Family Events, including The Science of Disney Imagineering, Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin, and Science Sunday at the Met. (I would also have been drawn to Toil and Trouble ... Stories of Experiments Gone Wrong.) I thought it interesting that both Alan Alda and Sam Shepard had a hand in last year's festivities.
To get a jump-start on 2009, you can sign up for festival updates and view video clips from some of the 2008 presentations. Happy planning!
