The Man Behind the Coil

image

Earlier this month, NYSCI, in collaboration with the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, Serbia, opened a new exhibition focusing on the life and work of the man who brought us bladeless turbines, remote controls and the Maker Faire-favorite, the Tesla coil. Nikola Tesla’s most significant invention was the alternating current induction motor, still used today in home appliances, as well as in machines in many industrial plants and factories.

Tesla’s Wonderful World of Electricity, on view at NYSCI through October 20, includes working replicas of Nikola Tesla’s inventions, models of his scientific laboratories, photographic reproductions, and a narrative about his life and work.

Super Father / Daughter team Beatty Robotics have completed our new Mars Rover and it’s in action right now in the Search for Life Beyond Earth exhibit!

Bearded dragon is a common name for lizards belonging to genus Pogona. Native to Australia, they are often found basking on rocks and branches during mornings and afternoons.
NYSCI’s bearded dragon here in picture loves interacting and is definitely not camera shy.

Be a part of history on January 12 as Scott Kildall’s Time Capsule is buried in NYSCI’s Rocket Park as part of Get Involved (Part 2), a focus on ReGeneration artists and projects that are on exhibit at NYSCI through January 13.
Scott’s project Imagine 2049 is a community-generated time capsule filled with ideas for a better, more sustainable society. 
Other workshops during the day include Biomodd’s Recycled Energy: make a USB solar charger that charges everyday electronic devices; and Shih Chieh Huang’s Inflatables: build a giant inflatable structure using found and recycled materials.

a geography of being : una geografia de ser is a three-part art project that reflects upon the dynamics of the undocumented immigrant population in the United States, specifically in relation to undocumented youth. The installation consists of the following elements: small kinetic sculptures with animated displays titled “Undocumented Drones” and a video game that places the player in the role of an undocumented youth that must face several challenges in the search for self-determination beyond the imposed constraints of citizenry. The visitor to the installation plays the game, the “Undocumented Drones” react to game play and may help the player along. Separately, a graphic zine represents the challenges and options presented in the video game - Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga.
