The Research, Exhibits and Programs department includes almost 50 researchers, informal STEM educators, exhibit designers, and program and curriculum developers. We embrace and benefit from the professional and personal diversity of our team’s expertise, perspectives and experiences. The group works in a variety of configurations to develop and implement creative, participatory learning experiences that awaken the curiosity of children, families and teachers. The department team aspires to be a learning community, and to contribute to NYSCI as a learning community, through openness, curiosity and an entrepreneurial spirit. We strive to create an informed environment through internal communications and participation in external networks of partners and collaborators.
