An aerial view of the World Science Festival
Posted June 6th, 2012
Launched in 2008 with events and programs all around New York City, this year, the World Science Festival’s Brooklyn headquarters highlighted the work of several the School of Engineering professors, students and graduates, among other innovators. Among the attractions featuring their work were an augmented-reality rocket launch, apps that allow users to control robots and an iPad app that offers chemistry students a playful take on Lewis Dots molecular diagrams.
Enthusiastic crowds of parents and kids, scientists, academics and laypeople milled about the square, waiting in long lines to catch a glimpse of quantum levitation and more.
