The day included science demonstrations, entry to the 3D Theater or Science Playground, free lunch, and exploration of more than 450 exhibits, including NYSCI’s newest exhibition, Connected Worlds.

The Google Field Trip Day also included a variety of hands-on STEM activities. Students created paper helicopters and airplanes to test flight patterns, donned color filter visors to see how they affected perception, created a gooey green substance to explore polymers, and used circuit blocks, wires, batteries and buzzers to learn about electricity.

The third and final Google Field Trip Day will be held at NYSCI on October 20. Over the three days, the program will reach more than 2,200 elementary and middle school students throughout the five boroughs.

NYSCI is able to offer these special Google Field Trip Days thanks to a partnership with Google.

About the Position

Thirty 5th and 6th graders are gathering today at NYSCI to experiment, design, build and invent at Make Academy. The fall after-school program runs weekly until mid-December and also includes a session for 7th and 8th graders. Students will take items apart to see how they work, transform and repurpose everyday materials to create their own inventions, and experiment with tools, software and digital equipment. The program, which takes place in NYSCI’s Maker Space, will have students using woodworking tools, CAD design software, 3D printers, and laser and vinyl cutters.

Although both fall sessions are currently full, you can be placed on our contact list to learn about future Make Academy programs by emailing tvelasquez@nysci.org.
