Not your ordinary panel discussion about science and the environment, TalkingSciences AquaCabaret gives the subject a wacky twist with performances by Coney Island sideshow performers Bambi the Mermaid and Sword Swallower and music by Reckon So as well as entertaining science experiments by a gang of scientists from Rutgers known as the Jersey Guys and a 3-D presentation about the Coney Island coastline by Gerald Marks. Actor and mathematician Danica McKellar (best known as Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years) will also be on hand to test your math knowledge with a quiz. Ira Flatow, popular host of NPRs Talk of the Nation: Science Friday, presents the fun. Stay after for fireworks.
