The Uni has been at Playground 103 in East Harlem to reach kids and families living nearby at NYCHA East River Houses. Our work here is in partnership with NYC Parks in support of the Community Parks Initiative, and tomorrow is our final deployment before the park gets a major renovation. I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone at 103, and we’re grateful to Kristy Di Cario of NYC Parks for working with us. Thanks also to Leaves of Grass Fund for supporting our deployments in parks across the city. We’ll be back!
Uni Site Manager Egypt introduces a puzzle form our latest program in development: SOLVE.
The Uni is for all ages.
She is reading Hip Hop Family Tree: music history in graphic novel format.
Thanks to our partner Green Below 14 for loan of Imagination Playground Block here.
This SOLVE puzzle looks easy but is not: put two bent nails together.
Solving the Tangram.
Time out for some turning.
Egypt takes one for the team.
As summer comes to a close, I’m thinking about the impact that Egypt and all Uni Project staff have made on New York City.
Tomorrow at Playground 103, we’ll begin the transition to our fall schedule. Keep learning NYC.
