During the ReMake the Holidays event—running from noon to 4 p.m. from December 27 to 30—families learn to use recycled materials and scientific concepts to celebrate the holidays while committing to sustainability. Each day focuses on a different theme, from Thursday's luminescent recycling projects to Sunday's experiments with water and hot holiday beverages. Throughout the weekend, ice sculptor Bill Bywater shows how to free the animals trapped in every block of ice, and the Hall of Science staff demonstrates the unique properties of crystals. Admission to the event also includes general admission to the museum itself.
New York Hall of Science
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 in the science playground, along with the mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos. One of the featured programs, Design Lab, consists of five visually and thematically distinct activity areas that evoke a sense of childlike playfulness and imagination. The activities encourage visitors to be creative while experimenting with structures, circuits, and simple materials. The youngest visitors can also enjoy a developmentally-appropriate science education of their own in Preschool Place.
