DEN SciCon, Discovery Times Square Exhibition, NYC
January 9, 2010

Attendees participated in the DEN streaming of the Science Conference Online.  During a break-out session staff members from the future King Tut exhibit briefly premiered their coming attraction.  After the virtual conference wrapped DEN members were invited to visit the Leonardo DaVinci and Titanic Exhibits at the Discovery Times Square Exhibit.


Celebration of Teaching & Learning
March 6, 2009

The Celebration is probably best known for its incredible array of Keynote Speakers, women and men who are at the very top of their fields and whose insight will raise your expectations for your profession and for yourselves.  That tradition continued in 2009 with Alan Alda (on science), Temple Grandin (on autism), Sir Kenneth Robinson (on creativity), Eric Schmidt (on technology), and the cast of the new ELECTRIC COMPANY (on literacy).

    Where can I found out about any Spring NY DEN Events happening in New York State, similar to the one held last year at the Baseball Hall of Fame in May? It was the best day! Thanks
