INTRODUCTION The NYC Center for Space Science Education is an experiential science resource center located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The primary goal of the Center is to increase students’ interest in and excitement about STEM in general and aviation and space science in particular. Single-day programs are available for students in 2nd-12th grade.
SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP LICENSE While we are open to all schools within New York City who wish to bring their students to our center, we are inviting schools to become partners with us so that we can create sustainable relationships that provide teachers and students access to our facility on an on-going basis. Our partner schools will have opportunities that include professional development workshops at the Space Center; unlimited classroom extensions to the Space Center; access to our curriculum; a meeting space; on-going correspondence and support from our staff; and access to our lending library of science materials and books.
