"The New York Hall of Science looks forward to working with Bank Street Camp every summer. Campers arrive eager and excited every year to explore over 400 hands-on exhibits and engage in fun science activities. Students were mesmerized as they observed stars and identified constellations in the planetarium. They learned the science behind magic tricks and were eager to try the tricks they learned on their family and friends. They were amazed too find out the different liquids have different densities and experimented with oil, water, syrup and liquid soap. The Bank Street team does a great job organizing these special days at NYSCI for their campers. Every summer is a great summer with Bank Street Camp!"
—Sylvia Perez, New York Hall of Science
