Storefront Science is a pretty unique space. Situated way uptown in Washington Heights (but conveniently close to the A and and 1 lines), it is part afterschool classroom and part creche, providing an informal, engaging learning experience for families, kids, and school groups. Based on the idea that learning is most effective when opt-in, with hands-on activities and experimentation at the forefront, StoSci provides classes and drop in sessions for children of all ages, put especially K through 5th grade, in ecology, biodiversity, mechanics and energy.
I mention this, because I’m teaching my first class there this afternoon. 🙂
