Presented by Parents & Science and RockEDU Science Outreach
The Rockefeller University has a tradition of giving back to the community through education initiatives for New York area students, parents, and teachers. In addition to the Parents & Science lectures and RockEDU Science Outreach programs, we host Science Saturday, an annual science festival for children in grades K–8 and their families.
Science Saturday was created in part to address the need for high quality science programming for schoolchildren throughout New York City. This STEM festival offers fascinating talks, demonstrations, and hands-on experiments led by Rockefeller scientists. Young students participate in investigations involving neuroscience, chemistry, life sciences, medicine, and engineering, as well as other fields. Each year, more than 1,000 children, parents, and teachers participate in Science Saturday.
