New York University is proud to be a university partner of the annual World Science Festival, which is returning to campus beginning Tues., May 30 through Sunday, June 4 for a celebration of science. Now in its 10th year, the World Science Festival will feature 50 programs in scientific disciplines ranging from astronomy, physics, and genetics to neuroscience, robotics, and mathematics.
