NYSCI’s educational programs have been recently recognized by the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) for their high quality of educational content and exceptional skill at program delivery.
The Virtual Visit program has won a Pinnacle Award for the 2013-14 school year. Virtual visits at NYSCI connect classrooms, hospitals and community centers to NYSCI instructors through a variety of videoconferencing technologies. They include exploration of NYSCI exhibits, demonstrations and activities, bringing NYSCI to students who may not otherwise be able to experience our effective style of hands-on learning.
NYSCI was also recognized with an honorable mention for online teacher professional development programs, making us the only organization recognized in both categories of content and professional development.
NYSCI Virtual Visits is made possible, in part, with support from the Verizon Foundation.
