EXPLORE is a new program that brings the exploration of natural science to the streets, in a portable, open-air, science lab-environment. Young and old can look at ants and other specimens through microscopes and magnifying glasses assisted by educators. And all can take home kits to further explore the wonders of New York City’s natural urban environment on their own.
The program has been developed in partnership with the Harlem-based HYPOTHEkids, a K-12 nonprofit science organization, as part of their STEAM the Streets initiative, bringing science and engineering experiences to students in unexpected places in NYC.
We’ll be testing EXPLORE in the parks, plazas and other public spaces of NYC early in our 2017 season, and developing it further across the year!
