NYSCI’s five new iPad apps will motivate students to learn fundamental math and science concepts and give teachers and parents a set of mobile resources that can inspire children’s everyday explorations in the classroom, at home, on the playground or just about anywhere else. Collectively known as Noticing Tools™, the five apps are now available in the App Store.
NYSCI has been shortlisted for the 2015 National Medal for Museum and Library Services.
