Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to Celebrate NYCxDesign

The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum will celebrate NYCxDesign—New York City’s inaugural citywide event to showcase and promote design of all disciplines—with several educational initiatives, including a programmatic takeover of Public School 3 in lower Manhattan, Design Tales for toddlers and a design expo for teachers.

From May 10 to May 16, the entire student body of P.S. 3 will participate in Design in the Classroom, Cooper-Hewitt’s ongoing program that sends design educators into classrooms for free hands-on workshops. The museum will also offer programs to engage the littlest designers in visualization and creative play at Design Tales, held May 14, May 16 and May 21 at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Center (111 Central Park North, New York). On May 15, Cooper-Hewitt will host the Innovative Educational Design Expo, in collaboration with the GreenLab committee of the NEST+m public school, highlighting schools in New York that are creating stimulating environments for K-12 students.
