A buzzing metropolis of science, technology, engineering, and mathematical possibilities, City of Science, hosted by the World Science Festival and Con Edison, fills the Park Slope Armory with interactive demonstrations and STEM activities. 

This year, visitors can launch objects 20 feet in the air with a seismic accelerator, walk on water, topple seven-foot tall dominoes, and create an orbiting universe at the "Warped Space Gravity Simulator."

Neighborhood science and community organizations including brainNY, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, MoMath/The National Museum of Mathematics, FIRST NYC Robotics: George Westinghouse and Brooklyn Technical High Schools, and the Prospect Park Zoo/Wildlife Conservation Society will also be leading hands-on activities. Local experts—teachers, university professors, and professional scientists—will be on hand at each demonstration or activity, to guide visitors through the science behind it.
