About the Position

As a core component of our NYSCI Neighbors initiative, NYSCI has launched a new program for families in our local community. During the school year, the Science Ambassadors program will admit thousands of students and their guardians to NYSCI for free in the after-school hours from Monday through Thursday. While at the museum, students can explore NYSCI exhibits, engage in engineering problems and learn new tools in workshops at Design Lab and Maker Space, listen to science stories, receive homework help, and learn from live science demonstrations.

In the program’s kick off Spirit Week, held February 27 – March 6, more than 900 families participated in bilingual museum tours and registered for the Science Ambassadors program. In collaboration with our school and community partners, families also enjoyed performances by school choirs and bands, folk dance groups and more during Spirit Week. Working in deep partnership with Community School District 24, and local school and community leaders, our goal over the next five years is to serve 5,000 families through the program.

Science Ambassadors is a program of NYSCI’s NYSCI Neighbors initiative and is supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.

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.
