The New York Hall of Science’s (NYSCI) work is guided by an approach to learning that it calls Design-Make-Play, which draws upon research on deeper learning that points to the importance of creating learning experiences that develop cognitive processes (e.g., critical thinking, knowledge integration, creativity and innovation); interpersonal skills (e.g., communication and collaboration); and intrapersonal skills (e.g., self-evaluation and metacognition).  Participants will go to the museum for an event that will engage them in inspiring and playful science learning.
