About Gateway To Science

The JCC Garoon Gateway to Science was designed with the guidance of two of the world’s leading experts in the field of experimental science education, Dr. Moshe Rishpon, director of the Clore Garden of Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel (the world’s first outdoor science museum) and Dr. Alan Friedman, founding director of the New York Hall of Science (New York City's largest hands-on science and technology center).

Over 60 Different Science Exhibits

The Garoon Gateway to Science is comprised of outdoor exhibits in a park setting of 8 Courts, containing over 60 different demonstrations. The Courts are organized into the subjects of Water, Energy, Waves, Forces, Vision, Sound, Motion, and Biology. Picture an outdoor world of enchantment and wonder, where children can take ownership of scientific discovery through hands-on exploration, delight in experimentation and learn through their curiosity and creativity.
