Cicada Serenade will take place at the New York Botanical Garden, Sat. June 1, as part of the World Science Festival.

Just because you aren”t in New York does not mean you have to miss out on the World Science Festival.

Check out the livestreaming opportunities to be in the audience — remotely — during key events through Sunday, June 2. How to join the livestream.

Many of the major festival events will be permanently archived for your viewing,  if you are out of town or not available for the livestreamed events.

Rev up your laptop or cellphone and join the scene.
