New York Hall of Science (NYSCI)

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. NYSCI programs and events include but are not limited to:

1. ASD workshops that are designed for young children, ages 3-5, with autism
spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings;
2. Innovation camps which are designed to explore STEM concepts, build problem-
solving and communications skills and inspire innovators; and
3. Maker Space workshops that focuses on using real tools to make real things and
re-use everyday materials in exciting ways.
