We received a sweet holiday card from our friends at the UNI PROJECT. The Uni is a one-of-a-kind, portable reading room for NYC. We contributed books to them in October 2012. Here is what they wrote in the card:
"Dear Rebecca,We love having your carefully chosen books with us as we take the Uni around the neighborhoods. Thanks to all at the NY Hall of Science for your support of the Uni! Best wishes for 2014."
Best wishes to you too, and thank you for the important work you do in our great city!
Watch this quick video from the Associated Press featuring NYSCI’s world record-breaking Gingerbread Lane and its creator, Chef Jon Lovitch. We are psyched to know that Jon is already planning for 2014!
NYSCI’s star photographer Andrew Kelly put this little slide show of photo’s from ReMake the Holidays’ SOUND activities, and activated it with Ben Garthus’ Recycled Percussion rhythms. We’re so happy these events not only inspire our participants, but also our photographer. Thanks Andrew!
"With its cards, wrapping, decorations, boxes and cut trees, Christmas often devolves from a time of joy into a time of junk. The New York Hall of Science has an annual solution: ReMake the Holidays, which pairs young visitors with artists and educators to turn trash into treasure."
