Families in the Bronx got the chance to find out first hand just how much fun science can be.
Thousands registered to attend the ‘City of Science’ event Saturday, February 9th at Lehman College in Kingsbridge Heights. The event, co-produced by Con-Edison and the non-profit ‘World Science Festival’, provided kids with the opportunity to experience science hands-on.
The interactive exhibits offered events like walking on water and learning about angular momentum using spinning chairs. The experience was enlightening according to one enthusiastic participant.
Jada Parrish observed “I was spinning in a circle and was holding weights. I noticed when I hold them close to my chest it spins faster and when I hold them out they spin slower.”
If you couldn’t catch it in the Bronx, ‘City of Science’ will be traveling throughout the boroughs later in the year.
