Lowline Science and Sustainability Fair

February 11, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm


Join us at the Lowline Lab for our first ever Science and Sustainability Fair!

This all ages, interactive fair will include workshops on topics from biomimicry to entomology to sustainability.

+  Explore the water cycle with fun activities led by Randall’s Island Park Alliance
+  Go on a scavenger hunt through the Lowline Lab to discover organisms and their functions with BiomimicryNYC 
+  Get your hands dirty with the LES Ecology Center’s hands-on worm bin (a composter’s best friend!)
+  Discover the future of eating insects, and the history of this nutritious, delicious, and plentiful food source with SEEK Food
+  Talk with the Lowline’s horticulturalists (the incredible company John Mini Distinctive Landscapes) to discover the story behind the Lowline Lab’s lush landscape (and how they keep it thriving!)
+  Grow (and take home!), your very own planter with the help of Ecovative’s rapidly regenerative mushroom mycelium material
+  Discover that science is for everyone with SimpleBiologist, a youtube channel that takes newly published scientific papers and makes them into understandable and fun whiteboard videos
+  Help promote women in science with Maryam Zaringhalam through her podcast “Science Soapbox”

There is a suggested donation of $10 but all donations are appreciated (Even a $1 helps!). RSVP is encouraged. All proceeds go towards making the Lowline a reality.  Walk-in participation will also be welcome, but priority will be given to those who reserved tickets online.
