About the Position


Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, offers a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all – that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, Cousteau invites viewers to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey. Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Secret Ocean 3D introduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra- HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.

Duration: 20 minutes.

Schedule:
July 12 – June 30, 2018
Daily at 11 am & 1 pm

Price:
$6 adults, $5 children, students and seniors, plus NYSCI admission.
(Members: $4 per person; free for Family Explorer members.)

Reserved school groups: $4 per person, plus group admission.

About the Position

Home is where the heart is! Explore various animal homes and learn about habitats, the plants and animals within them, and how they are all connected.

Join us for hands-on science experiments and sensory-rich projects in workshops specially designed for children, ages 5–7, with autism spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings.

Science Scouts workshops include a small teacher-to-student ratio as students practice focusing/concentration, social cognition, collaboration/teamwork, listening/comprehension skills and more. Our educators are trained to work with kids with differences.

These free workshops provide opportunities to enjoy family time at the museum in a welcoming, safe and understanding environment, allow parents to network with one another, and help families discover the wonder of science learning together. Materials will include visual schedules, a communication booklet and more.

Sometimes creativity can get messy, so please dress your young scientist (and yourself) in old clothing that can be splattered.

 

To register and for more information, call 718-683-9366 or email dmeza@nysci.orgPreregistration is required.

 

This program is free for families and is made possible through generous support from the Jesse and Joan Kupferberg Foundation.

About the Position

The Art of Science 2014 showcases images of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. The exhibition spurs debate among artists about the nature of art, opens scientists to new ways of “seeing” their own research, and serves as a window through which the general public can appreciate both art and science. These images were chosen from more than 250 submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff and alumni representing more than 25 different departments at Princeton University. They span the fields of electrical engineering, ecology, evolution, chemistry and biology with images of termites, cockroaches, fruit flies and geological structures.

Featured Photo
Watermarks by Sara Sadri, postdoc, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton University.

“Watermarks” is by Sara Sadri (postdoctoral researcher). Water can erode rock, carve through cliffs, and sculpt sand. Water moving back and forth on the Atlantic coast created this intricate pattern. As a hydrologist, I am fascinated by the natural phenomena of our beautiful planet. The way water in this picture found its way back to the ocean reminded me of a peacock’s tail spreading under the sun or a woman’s hair blowing in the wind.

Background

Since its founding at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) has inspired millions of people—children, teachers, and families– by offering creative, participatory ways to learn and encouraging people to explore their curiosity and nurture their creativity. Located in Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the country, NYSCI welcomes 500,000 visitors each year and serves thousands more through outreach in schools, teacher professional development, and participation in a variety of public events and research initiatives.

NYSCI is a leader in the science museum field, recognized for its highly regarded exhibitions, programs, and products, all of which are informed by strategies of engagement called Design, Make, Play. The defining characteristics of Design, Make, Play — open-ended exploration, imaginative learning, personal relevance, deep engagement, and delight — are the ingredients that inspire passionate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learners. NYSCI engages diverse communities of learners, particularly young people, in STEM, by fostering the excitement of self-directed exploration and by tapping into the joy of learning intrinsic in young people’s play. Our transformative model for STEM exploration invites broad participation and makes engagement and learning irresistible.

NYSCI has approximately 120 full-time and over 180 part-time staff members.
