The City of Science

Students from 90 schools and their families gathered in the gym at York College in Jamaica on Nov. 3 for “City of Science,” an interactive event with hands-on and sometimes larger-than-life attractions and activities with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math.

More than 2,000 families were estimated to have visited the free event.

It was produced by the nonprofit World Science Festival and presented by Con Edison.

Participants of all ages had the opportunity to become robots, orbit Earth, walk on water and challenge Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law — while on wheels.
