Summer Science Clubs!


NYPL Summer Reading Challenge

Join the New York Public Library as we collaborate with the Children's Museum of Manhattan for the Summer Reading Challenge's Science Clubs!

Spend seven weeks this summer becoming a super scientist. CMOM educators will lead weekly workshops exploring simple machines and their unique functions. Kids will learn about gears, pulleys, wheel and axles and much more through hands-on demonstrations.  Get hands-on learning by building models such as cars, planes and paddle boats that lead up to a culminating activity where kids work together with other super scientists to build their very own Rube Goldberg machine!

Presented by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. For ages 6 and older.

Summer Science Clubs run from July 7 – August 26. Check out the participating sites below and find one near you!
