The Designers-in-Residence (DiR) program has been created to infuse innovation and current design principles, thinking and insight into NYSCI’s Science Career Ladder. During their residency, DiRs will participate in public programs and be paired with a small group of two or three Explainers. DiRs come to NYSCI to engage with museum culture, explore our resources, and work with their Explainer partners. The goal of the program is for the DiR and Explainer teams to test ideas with the public, develop new work or new components of existing projects, and introduce different perspectives into the way NYSCI presents information and engages with our multiple publics.

NYSCI is seeking deep engagements with local thinkers, creators, makers, educators, artists, technicians, architects, and engineers working in and around the design community for the second year of its Designers-in-Residence (DiR) Program.

We are looking for collaborators who want to engage with museum culture, explore our resources, and work with the NYSCI Explainers to infuse innovation and current design principles, thinking and insight into NYSCI’s Science Career Ladder. NYSCI is interested in individuals and groups who want to test ideas with the public, develop new work or new components of existing projects, and introduce different perspectives into the way we present information and engage with our multiple publics. During their residency, each DiR will participate in public programs and be paired with a small group of two or three Explainers.
