Families and locals from the community joined Manhattanville’s Mad Science–themed events on Saturday, April 13. Children learned the science behind slime and its sensory benefits, adults were able to check their blood pressure for free, and movie lovers went back in time with a screening of the 1960s film The Absent Minded Professor. These and several other events were free and open to the public. At the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, the Zuckerman Institute held its monthly Saturday Science featuring tools and technology in science for youth to explore. Participants held a real brain, learned about the cells that are inside, created squishy brain cells that light up, and operated a laboratory- grade microscope and virtual reality devices. The Wallach took their event outside to the Small Square in front of the Lenfest Center for the Arts, where families explored working with artist tools to design and decorate tote bags.
