New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) in Queens is hosting a special session for AERA participants on April 14. NYSCI’s work is guided by an approach to learning called Design-Make-Play, which draws upon research on deeper learning that points to the importance of creating learning experiences that develop cognitive processes (e.g., critical thinking, knowledge integration, creativity and innovation); interpersonal skills (e.g., communication and collaboration); and intrapersonal skills (e.g., self-evaluation and metacognition).

NYSCI invites visitors to the AERA annual meeting to come to the museum for an event that will engage participants in inspiring and playful science learning. The event will feature two new exhibition areas: Connected Worlds and Design Lab, and research funded by the National Science Foundation and the JPB Foundation that is currently underway on these learning environments.

The event will take place from 3-5 PM on April 14th at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Interested participants should gather at 2PM in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel Midtown on 6th Avenue and 53rd St. Andrés Henríquez, NYSCI’s VP of STEM Learning in Communities, will be there to take visitors on the subway to NYSCI.
