Today, we brought the Uni to a great play street in the Bronx run by Caldwell Programs. As I promised everyone last week, I brought along some new math puzzles today. Learn more about our ongoing effort at play streets, made possible by a grant from Shippy Foundation. Thanks to Uni staff Leah Kaplan and Ester Shmulyian and Jennings Play Street founder Lonnie Hardy. Make a place for learning.

Ester is rounding out her summer working in the Uni and will be returning to study at MIT in the fall. Working the protractor. Is this the DRAW or SOLVE program going on here?…

Thanks everyone at Jennings St. See you next week!

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
