The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) was founded at the 1964–65 World’s Fair and has evolved into New York’s center for interactive science, serving a half million students, teachers, and families each year. Located in Queens — America’s most diverse county — NYSCI is committed to creating a world where diversity unlocks innovation, and where people learn to use science, technology, engineering, and math to tackle complex 21st century challenges. NYSCI is more than a world-class destination for learning and play. It is where exhibits inspire visitors, where young scientists get their start, where community members come to learn, and where critical STEM education research occurs.

Resources For Students and Teachers:

Student + 3 vouchers are valid only for General Admission. Student vouchers are not valid for workshops or parking.
