The New York Hall of Science

We are very excited to announce our partnership with the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI), New York City’s hands-on science and technology center. Since 1986, NYSCI has served over seven million children, parents and teachers. NYSCI's mission is to convey the excitement and understanding of science and technology to children, families, teachers and others by galvanizing their curiosity and offering them creative, participatory ways to learn.

For almost thirty years, through its signature program, Science Career Ladder (SCL), NYSCI has provided opportunities for young people to get involved and receive real life experience working in the sciences. SCL combines youth development and youth employment, giving young people increasing levels of responsibility, pay and skills development through a rigorous system of training and assessment.

Between 150 and 200 young people participate at any given time. About 90 percent are minority - Hispanic, African American and Asian - representing many nationalities and speaking 29 languages.

More recently, NYSCI has made a commitment to further broaden and deepen the SCL’s career preparation program. Zoomdojo is honored to be selected as a partner in NYSCI’s important new initiative. We look forward to devoting our collective efforts to promote STEM education and careers in STEM disciplines with NYSCI and the SCL students!
