igniting creativity
+ discovery

Science and Arts Engagement New York (SAENY) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Inspired by the Science Gallery model developed, tested and proven by Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, SAENY is serving as the corporate vehicle for the creation of a series of pop-up exhibits that are immersive, intelligent and interactive. We are working to engage young people 15 to 25 years old, spur their interest in the STEAM fields and provide access to exhibitions and programs that demonstrate the collision of art and science in everyday life.  

we collide
worlds

We are

Scientists, Designers, Dreamers, Tinkerers, + Pioneers

who are pushing the boundaries of how art and science coexist to broaden our horizons. 

We bring science to the community by building experiences that invite the community to engage in science through art. We emphasize the beauty and power unleashed by the collaboration of art and science through our storytelling and interactive exhibits.

We are committed to

‘eliminating the underrepresentation of young men and women of color’

in the science, tech, engineering, art + mathematics (STEAM) fields.
