SUBMERGE Marine Science Festival

Come celebrate all things marine science at Hudson River Park’s SUBMERGE Marine Science Festival!

SUBMERGE brings marine science to life as we learn about NYC’s coastal waters from our River Project team and more than 30 regional STEM experts. This interactive science festival invites the public to explore water topics through awesome experiments, kid-approved entertainment and much more!

Hudson River Park’s River Project is committed to advancing public awareness and understanding of our connected waterways. SUBMERGE aims to inspire and make marine science and STEM accessible and engaging for everyone; we look forward to welcoming science lovers of all ages to take part in the fun!
