It's 60,000 square feet of outdoor fun! Through dozens of playground elements like slides and seesaws, people of all ages and abilities explore the scientific principles of motion, balance, sound, sight and simple machines, as well as sun, wind and water. The New York Hall of Science unveiled its outdoor Science Playground in 1997 to help the public experience aspects of science and technology through the sensations of their entire bodies. In 2007, the Hall doubled the size of the popular outdoor Science Playground with 30,000 square feet of exhibits designed for children ages 6 and younger. Through playground elements, like slides and seesaws, people of all ages and abilities explore the scientific principles of motion, balance, sound, sight, simple machines and sun, wind and water.
