New York Hall of Science


Each fall New York Hall of Science hosts makers, educators, and families for the World Maker Faire. In addition to the many displays and workshops, the building and grounds are filled with family-friendly hands-on maker activities and workshops.

On a typical day makers can experience workshops, the Design Lab, and the Makerspace. Families with young children will appreciate a section devoted to Little Makers that encourages playful learning. Educators are invited to bring students on field trips and and programs are available to explore science both in-school and out-of-school. Additional resources for teachers are available for download at

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).
