Hands-on activities to engage the senses and explore environmental science during this early childhood education program!

Is your little one curious about the world around them? Looking for family time in NYC this summer? Explore the wonders of the Hudson River in our new, early childhood summer series: Sensory Science! Each week, we will dive into a unique organism that lives in the Park by using our senses.

Join us at the Pier 57 Discovery Tank classroom as we investigate the Hudson River environment through scientific experiments, crafts, story time and more. Then, check out our technology-powered gallery to play immersive games and meet virtual Hudson River critters!

This program is ideal for budding scientists ages 3–8 but all are welcome.
