Hello, my name is Chris Lawrence and I am the Supervisor of Distance Learning Programs at the New York Hall of Science. I manage our Virtual Visits Videoconferencing programs that relaunched in the fall of 2006. I am a graduate of the Museum Education program at the Bank Street College of Education. I am very interested in the ways that social read/write web technologies can expand our understandings of education and always excited about the possibilities of placing real world tools into the hands of learners!

About our Education Department:

The New York Hall of Science offers a variety of programs for students and teachers.
