CORONA — Where can you make your own slime, learn about nanocrystals and talk to an operator from NASA's mission control? In Queens.
On Tuesday, kids can learn about nanoengineering, as well as the small-scale conversion of heat and energy through nanocrystal and "liquid goo" demonstrations.
Chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and biology and engineering round out the rest of the week, with hands-on activities for children that include rocket building and the chance to make a DNA helix.
All activities are free with admission to NYSCI and the activities will be run by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
NYSCI is located at 47-01 111th St., Corona. The program runs through Friday, Feb. 21. Activities run all day, with varying start times. For more information, visit the museum's website.
