ReMake the Holidays at New York Hall of Science

In the days after Christmas, visitors to NYSCI become makers as they fold, dye, twist, solder and sculpt.

ReMake the Holidays at New York Hall of Science

All the activity is part of NYSCI's ReMake the Holidays, which runs from December 27 – 30, and features ice sculpting, crystal demonstrations, and workshops on origami, tissue box guitars and soda tab bracelets.

Each day of ReMake the Holidays will focus on a different theme. Most activities are free with NYSCI admission. Some projects require a small materials fee.

So bring your family to NYSCI next week because one of the best gifts you can give to your kids is to set loose their imaginations.
