NYSCI brings events, programs, workshops, performances, and festivals both onsite and off, that offers accessibility to everyone. Our on-going research, prototyping, as well as temporary and permanent exhibits, make sure that you’ll not only have fun but be totally engaged in science. The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) was founded at the 1964–65 World’s Fair and has evolved into New York’s center for interactive science, serving a half million students, teachers, and families each year. NYSCI serves schools, families and underserved communities in the New York City area, offering informal, hands-on learning through various products and services that use the “design-make-play” method of bringing delight and play to educating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The museum is situated in a highly diverse neighborhood and employs youth from the community as part of our science career ladder program—contributing to diversity in careers in science and technology on a national scale.
