Science & Sustainability Fair at the Lowline
Join us at the Lowline Lab for our first ever Science and Sustainability Fair!
Saturday, February 11, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
This all ages, interactive fair will include workshops on topics from biomimicry to entomology to sustainability.
+ Explore the water cycle with fun activities led by Randall’s Island Park Alliance
+ Go on a scavenger hunt through the Lowline Lab to discover organisms and their functions with BiomimicryNYC
+ Get your hands dirty with the LES Ecology Center’s hands-on worm bin (a composter’s best friend!)
+ Discover the future of eating insects, and the history of this nutritious, delicious, and plentiful food source with SEEK Food
+ Talk with the Lowline’s horticulturalists (the incredible company John Mini Distinctive Landscapes) to discover the story behind the Lowline Lab’s lush landscape (and how they keep it thriving!)
+ Grow (and take home!), your very own planter with the help of Ecovative’s rapidly regenerative mushroom mycelium material
+ Hop aboard the BioBus, a mobile laboratory, to learn about all things biology and have some serious fun with microscopes
+ Discover that science is for everyone with SimpleBiologist, a youtube channel that takes newly published scientific papers and makes them into understandable and fun whiteboard videos
+ Help promote women in science with Maryam Zaringhalam through her podcast “Science Soapbox”
