Students from nine Brooklyn schools were among roughly 1,500 kids who flooded a street science festival at Iridescent Science Studio, a new learning and discovery community center in the Bronx for underserved city students and their parents.

The center was launched by Iridescent, a national science education nonprofit, and the U.S. Office of Naval Research, and is designed to offer kids the opportunity to learn alongside science and technology experts from local institutions using interactive and hands-on learning activities.

“The Navy and Marine Corps have a stake in strengthening the future science and engineering workforce,” said Navy Secretary Mabus. “Our investment in programs like Iridescent demonstrates our commitment toward improving science, technology, engineering and mathematics education for students across the country.”

Students from Brooklyn schools P.S. 214, Trey Whitfield School, P.S. 73, P.S. 12, P.S. 398, P.S. 189, M.S. 246, P.S. 24 and Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science for Young Women attended the festival.

Iridescent Studio is located in the landmark building, The BankNote, at 890 Garrison Ave. in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx. For more information, visit www.iridescentlearning.org.
