The Hall of Science in New York City started out as an exhibition during the 1964-1965 World’s Fair. The building remained the same until a renovation in 1981, which replaced all of the exhibits. Since then, the institution has been more successful. Past and current exhibits include a design lab, microscopes, windmills, and a 3D model of an atom. Today, the Hall of Science educates the city’s youth through hands-on science experiences. The Hall of Science also hires local high school and college students as assistants and guides, in hope that their experience will motivate them to pursue careers in the sciences or teaching.
