The summer heat has finally come to New York City. If you’re looking for a place to cool down while learning some cool things about science, check out our list of events for this week.
On Wednesday, learn about sustainable happiness at the Rubin Museum. Joe Loizzo, a psychotherapist, will discuss his new book about well-being and altruism and what we can learn from Asian cultures about living well-balance lives and handling the stresses of modern society that often lead to depression, obesity, and cancer.
Come out to Brooklyn Bridge Park after the heat has gone to check out the night sky. Astronomers from the Amateur Astronomers Association will be out with telescopes to help you identify some night sky objects.
If you’re still looking for a way to see the night sky, the Columbia Astronomy Outreach program is hosing their biweekly Science Fact vs Fiction event. This Friday, they will be showing the movie Transformers 3, followed by a discussion of science fiction vs science fact and a stargazing session.
