Description: This Sunday’s 37th Annual Atlantic Antic Street Festival will feature popular children’s educator Carmelo Piazza, better known as Carmelo the Science Fellow, working up spectacular and scientific wonders in his Magician’s Lab on Atlantic Avenue, presented by AT&T. Piazza, who has been teaching science at P.S. 261 in Brooklyn for 12 years and has run the Cosmic Cove on Atlantic Avenue for six, will focus Sunday on experimenting with the states of matter – solid, liquid and gas. Visitors to his Magic of Science show will make mini-rockets to learn about gases; mix solids and liquids to make snow on warm day; and will create a mystery matter (green slime!) that children can bring home, with a question to discuss with their parents: Which state of matter is it? The Antic will be held 12 – 6 p.m. on Atlantic Avenue between Hicks Street and Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, rain or shine, and will feature delicacies and unique merchandise from more than 500 vendors and 100 local merchants, 10 live music stages and one block dedicated entirely to family-friendly fun. A must-see this year is the new and improved Atlantic Antic Kids’ Block located between Boerum Place and Smith Street. In addition to Carmelo the Science Fellow’s Magician’s Lab presented by AT&T, the Kids’ Block will feature pony rides, face painting, inflatable rides, airbrush tattoos and all the Brooklyn delicacies you can eat.
