Here are some photos from the New York Hall of Science Rad Science Demo. Our visitors got to see and learn about the laws of physics behind extreme sports. Rodney Torres and his team of skaters joined us to do the skating while we did the explaining.

Great job guys!

"One of my science teachers was an explainer. She used to tell me her stories," Taveras said. "I wanted to see what it was like to interact with people on a daily basis."

Here’s the Uni Project at Corona Plaza this summer.  Our library is going to “curate” a cube at The Uni Project, a one-of-a-kind, portable reading room for New York City.
They set up all over the city, including our very own Corona. Their goal is to share books, showcase the act of learning and improve public space. 
We support that!  And in donating books to them, we also promote NYSCI.  To find out more, go here UNI PROJECT

They’ll be back Saturday Nov 10 in Corona!
