Family Science Day at New York Botanical Garden

Urban Advantage families have the opportunity to participate in free activities at Adventure Point, located within the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. Activities include (while supplies last):

  • Macroinvertebrate Sorting: Take a look at the tiny organisms that live right here in our very own Bronx River
  • Worm Composting: Investigate worms up close and see what they like to eat
  • Free plants: Pot up a plant to take home with you!
  • Giveaways: Free books!!!
  • Snacks

Family Science Days serve as a kickoff to our Urban Advantage program year, and is meant to get our schools, students and families excited about science and to create a memorable experience at our museums, gardens and zoos. Each of our eight UA institutions hosts a Family Science Day during the month of October. It is our hope that Family Science Day will spark student interest in science and inspire them to return to our institutions on their own.
