EXPLORE NYC is a hands-on science exhibit that brings the exploration of nature and science to the streets. Elements include:

    • a custom-designed cart and benches for seating;
    • specimens to explore, including rocks, feathers, bones, moss, water samples, and more;
    • a nature-sounds listening station;
    • microscopes and magnifying glasses;
    • water-color pencils, brushes, and instructions about techniques of biological drawing;
    • a nature rubbing activity;
    • science books to read;
    • staff, volunteers, and educators to facilitate.

    The program is staffed in partnership with the Harlem-based HYPOTHEkids, a K-12 nonprofit science organization.
