Illumination Space logo

At the ASRC IlluminationSpace, located at the Advanced Science Research Center of The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, visitors explore five exciting and interconnected areas of science — nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience, and environmental sciences — in a fun and supportive environment to encourage a deeper understanding of how science shapes our everyday lives.

Through interactive motion and touchscreen games and engaging conversations with researchers, visitors learn about the ASRC’s initiatives, inspiring them to search for science in the world around them.

High school field trips to the ASRC IlluminationSpace are available most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Families, after-school programs, and adults are encouraged to visit during Community Hours, held on the first Monday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Reservations are encouraged and are required for groups larger than 10. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Field trips and Community Hours are free to participants.
