Calling all science enthusiasts! The World Science Festival is back!

The annual live, week-long New York Festival, which launched in 2008, has collectively drawn more than a million and a half visitors, with millions more viewing the programs online.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the World Science Festival, serving as our ambassadors to the public and participants alike. They are a welcoming face to visitors, chock-full of information about the Festival and its programs. Volunteers also support the many production teams that make so many compelling programs and experiences possible.
