NY Hall of Science x Open Road

On June 8 we were invited to New York Hall of Science to create interactive art with kids in Rocket Park. And we'll be back again July 14 as part of Summer of the Stars. Thank you to our skateboarder/artists Andy Millien and Aaron Warner, Caitlin Pontrella of Movement Creative, and Tim Rutgers and June Amram for leading sessions.

Kids designed their own skate decks and stickers, played with 3D models and mini skateboards, all surrounded by skateboard demos by Aaron Warner + Andy Millien (Andy to the right in photo, above).

For our next creative session on July 14, come play with interactive urban food garden designs, that blend beautifully with sports and active play! Summer of the Stars, July 14.
