Science for Nanos

Imagine Science Film Festival Screening 

Loading Events

Searching sea turtles, avenging sea monsters, and philosophical frogs all meet in the latest year of our ongoing Science for Nanos series of science films for the whole family.

Science for Nanos, the long-running series of family matinee programs at the Imagine Science Film Festival, returns to NYSCI with a new selection of unique, informative and inspiring films for younger audiences. This year’s program, Caring for the Natural World, covers our relationship with the natural world—as scientists, as observers and as consumers of its resources. While the topics are serious, the approaches are fun and engaging, so join us for stem cell reenactments, stop-motion environmental monster movies, and surreal lessons in how to collect milk from the sun.

This year the program focuses on our place in the changing biosphere of Earth, but we also couldn’t resist looking beyond, into particles, planets, and the scientific method in space.

Presented by the 10th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival.

Note that while most of the films are in English, the final three are in French and Dutch, and will be shown with English subtitles. We apologize to our youngest viewers for the inconvenience.

Imagine Science Films is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in existence since 2008, committed to promoting a high-level dialogue between scientists and filmmakers. The festival mission is to bridge the gap between art and science through film, thereby transforming the way science is communicated to the public and encouraging collaboration across disciplines.
