Here are pictures of Design Lab’s training at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI).

Being a design based learning experience, Design Lab offers a great exposure for visitors of all ages to build and create relatable objects while incorporating various science concepts.

Soon, activities seen above and others will be brought on to the museum’s floor for interaction. 

Check www.nysci.org for updates on the activities in near future. 

Nice pics NYSCI Explainers … Design Lab will have their own blog up and running very soon: designlab.nysci.org

Tips for Teachers

The final post in our back-to-school tips for teachers comes courtesy of Scott Wayne Indiana, a Content Developer in NYSCI’s Design Lab:

I taught high school math for ten years and the first day of every class involved very little math.  I wanted to get to know the students as individuals, as fellow humans.  I wanted to hear from each of them.  The seeds for the classroom community were planted and we grew from there.
