Summertime is when kids get their best opportunities to run and play. The physics involved with sports are so compelling that author Sean Connolly decided to write a book about it. Perhaps getting to know the science behind a tennis ball will make you a better player.

Jessica Garrett does some icky experiments that can easily be done using household products and teaches your kids valuable scientific lessons.
 
You’re never too young to start learning science. Kim Magloire is a science educator who founded SciTech Kids, a program teaching science to kids as young as 3-years old.

See what happens when high school teams from all over the five boroughs and the world compete in a robotics competition. Mike Gilliam heads to the NYCFirst competition in the Fort Washington Armory to see what these robots can do.

Ari Goldberg discovers some new and exciting technology being used to allow older video games to still be played as he unleashes his inner child at Video Games New York.
