Family Science Day at New York Botanical Garden

Explore Macroinvertebrates from the Bronx River, Learn about Compost, Take a Carnivorous Plant Home, and More!

Join us at the New York Botanical Garden, in the Bronx, for a day of fun and science! Family Science Day is an open house in which families can experience fun and engaging science activities at the Garden, including exploring carnivorous plants and organisms living in the nearby Bronx River. Meet Urban Advantage staff and educators, interact with other Urban Advantage schools and families and enjoy the grounds, tram and and Enid A. Haupt Conservatory during your visit!

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.
