Brooklyn a Geek Wonderland Saturday, June 2

The World Science Festival geek-fest — promoted as “premier science event in the United States” — takes place in New York City through June 3, and on Saturday two sites in Brooklyn will be buzzing with science, says the Brooklyn Eagle.

At Brooklyn Bridge Park, the festival (from 10 a.m.–10 p.m.) will aim more at families with a daylong event called “Science-On-Site: Explorations in Brooklyn Bridge Park.” The day culminates with an evening of stargazing — telescopes and food trucks included.

In Downtown Brooklyn, NYU-Poly is transforming Metrotech’s outdoor park area (noon–7 p.m.)into a high-tech playground: "Innovation Square." Interactive exhibits will include robotics, multiplayer gaming and educational technology, and showcase NYU-Poly as a lynchpin of Brooklyn’s “Tech Triangle.”
