On Sunday, June 4, 2017, The HUMAN Project team exhibited a booth at the World Science Festival’s Ultimate Science Sunday Fair from 10-6pm in NYU’s Kimmel Center. The World Science Festival is an annual production from the World Science Foundation, a non-profit organization headquartered in New York City. The festival gathers experts in science and the arts and produces live and digital content that appeals to a general audience.
The Ultimate Science Sunday event, formerly known as the World Science Festival’s Street Science Fair, is an action-packed day where families can learn hands-on about science through interactive exhibits, demonstrations, and games. This year, The HUMAN Project’s Memory Lane exhibit allowed families, especially children to learn all of the different factors that have an impact on memory and why it is important to study people for long periods of time through fun games. The exhibit also allowed people to learn more about The HUMAN Project and compete against members of their households and other boroughs. Below are some of the data visualization graphs that reflect the results that we obtained at the Ultimate Science Sunday event.
