February at NYSCI New York Hall of Science 47-01 111th St Corona, NY 11368
February is shaping up to be an exciting month at NYSCI – we have lots of exciting programs happening this month, along with the grand opening of our brand new exhibit, Bionic Me!
Opening on February 11, Bionic Me explores how technology meets the human body in the form of mind-control, exoskeletons, wind tunnels and more. We're excited about this new exhibit and think you will be too, but be sure to catch it before it leaves on May 5. This is because Bionic Me is the first traveling exhibition that will reside in the Upper Level North Wing that Sports Challenge used to be in. Over the next few years, that space will feature traveling exhibitions as we work behind the scenes to bring you exciting permanent exhibits.
If you can't get enough of engineering, come to NYSCI during February school break for Engineering Week from February 18 - 22. Kicking off with Civil Engineering Day on Monday, February 18, NYSCI Explainers and engineering partners from NYU's Tandon School of Engineering have developed a week of engineering activities for you to participate in. Learn about new areas of engineering and what current students are researching while engaging in hands-on activities.
Finally, our Make It activity of the month is Make It: Penguin Pals. Beginning on February 9, come to Maker Space to learn how to hand sew and make your own stuffed penguin.
