"We teach what we love to do," says Alex, president of CK Sports, "It doesn't get any better than that." For a lot of the staff, that means teaching basketball. Team CK's clutch of coaches run a robust, year-round basketball program. They hold training three days a week and focus on fundamental skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. They train hard to give their athletes as much competitive edge as possible, while still teaching their students to play nice, according to the rules of the Nice League. "Out basketball program is for anyone who wishes to get great exercise while having fun and making friends," Alex reiterates.

Of course, they've got a lot of square footage between their gym and fitness center, and not all of it is court space. They also teach a variety of other sports-specific programs, including swimming and wrestling. They focus on a variety of seasonal activities in both summer and winter camps, and even offer general fitness training through one-on-one sessions in their gym.

Reflecting the diverse scope and scale of science itself, the exhibits at the New York Hall of Science range from massive NASA rockets to holographic depictions of the infinitesimal atom. Originally built for the 1964 World's Fair to showcase technological advancements, the center has since transformed into an interactive museum and leading innovator in exhibit technology and educational programming that, since 1986, has seen more than 7 million visitors. Today, more than 450 interactive exhibits, along with 3D movies and live daily demonstrations, invite visitors of all ages to explore the world by watching living microbes thrive and evolve in a miniscule zoo, discovering the powerful mathematics hidden in everyday objects, and testing their understanding of physics and Plutonian trash talk in the science playground, along with the mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos. The youngest visitors can also enjoy a developmentally-appropriate science education of their own in Preschool Place.
