This event is in the past.

When was the last time you conducted a science experiment? Have you looked at Jupiter or Saturn through a telescope recently? Have you held a gyroscope as it defies gravity, or conducted electricity through a chain of people at the playground? When you visit a Sidewalk Science Center, you get to participate in all of that and more. Sidewalk Science Center takes education out of the classroom and puts it where people gather: at playgrounds, beaches, outdoor malls, waterside parks, and any number of other public spaces. In this lecture, Alex Martin tells the story of what led him to create the Sidewalk Science Center program, the opportunities it's brought and places it's taken him and others along the way, and the program's future outlook. Afterward, join him for a presentation of Sidewalk Science Center and join the tens-of-thousands of people who have stumbled across SSC in their own parks, towns, and cities.
