Thanks for joining us in 2017 for

Optical adventures at the HoloCenter on Governors Island

if you missed us we plan to be back in summer 2018 with drop-in activities every Wednesday through the summer school vacation.  If you would like to get involved please contact us.

At Light Play we explore light, get creative and play.

Participants are encouraged investigate science through making,

Light Play activities are designed for different skill levels.  We designed the program with 3-9 year-olds in mind… supervised little ones are welcome and older siblings who want to help the younger ones or explore the library and optics games are welcome too.

Parents and carers assist with making. On nice days we work on the porch, and are inside when it rains.

Governors Island is great for kids to scooter and bike without cars
