Bring NYSCI to your classroom or summer camp site. Engage in a science lesson with your students at your school. Our instructor models an interactive, inquiry-based lesson that you can incorporate into your academic repertoire. Follow-up activities for each workshop are provided.
Literacy and mathematics are stressed throughout the lessons. Programs can be customized to meet your requirements including special needs, gifted and talented, preschool and bilingual students, pending prior consultation upon booking.

Experiment: Make bubbles just using water! Then add soap to make longer-lasting bubbles. Investigate the shapes of bubbles by using different wands. Finally, create bubble art!
Scientific Method and Literacy: Experience solids, liquids and gases as you investigate an unknown substance called Oobleck. Following a storytelling session, each student will make their own Oobleck and relate it to the story.
Scientific Method and Literacy: Delve into the world of science and explore the scientific method. Children learn to become scientists as they observe, record and predict in a series of experiments. Measurement skills are stressed.
Magnets: Can you predict what happens when two magnets are brought together? Find out and explore other properties of magnets through a series of hands-on activities. This workshop exercises classification and measurement.
Light: Learn how light can be produced and become familiar with some of its properties. Experiment with reflection, refraction, diffraction and absorption.
Electricity: Discover how electricity is produced. Experience the powerful electric field of an electrostatic generator. Design and build simple circuits. Experiment with conductors and insulators.
Lenses: Find out how lenses can work separately and together. Explore the concept of refraction and use rulers to determine focal points of convex and concave lenses.
Microbiology: Using high-quality portable microscopes, explore the fascinating world of animals and protists. Find out what it means to magnify and resolve an image, how we classify living things and learn to identify some of the parts and functions of single-celled organisms.
Genetics: Discover the shared chemistry that exists among living things. Participate in an activity demonstrating how the same units of DNA lead to the diversity of living things. Isolate and take home the DNA from a strawberry or a banana.
