Submerge! - NYC’s Marine Science Festival takes place this Saturday on Pier 26 in Tribeca from 11:00am - 4:00pm. Kids (and quite a few adults) will get to learn...for FREE...first hand about the Hudson River waterways and the influence humans have on marine life. This interactive day is sure to inspire some scientists in the making...
Kids will learn valuable information about Hudson River through marine robotics and the scientists that run them with hands-on experiments throughout the day. Interactive touch tanks will allow the public an up close and personal look at sea horses, stingrays, horseshoe crabs, and more. Kids will be given the opportunity to contribute to the ecosystem on the Hudson River by creating oyster habitats to improve their population.
Comedian, creator and host of You're the Expert, Chris Duffy, will be MCing the Science Stage and interviewing three very different and experienced scientists throughout the program. It might get a little wet in the front row with Mad Science's water experiments while Unusual Creatures perform songs that celebrate some of the most bizarre animals on earth.
We are thrilled to be working with Hudson River Park Trust on such an impactful and educational event. Stop by Pier 26 to pin the tail on the shark or take advantage of catch & release fishing and kayaking!
