Lowline Science and Sustainability Fair
February 11, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
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.
