It is time for you to teach the teacher


Were you the kid doodling in the back of the classroom? During gym did you draw elaborate designs on your arm with a Bic pen while waiting to be picked for a team?

CityRacks Competition


Last spring, the New York City Department of Transportation, in partnership with Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, requested proposals for functional, innovative bike rack designs that would raise the profile of cycling as both a convenient and eco-friendly mode of transportation in New York City.

Design Education for Everyone


An amazing group of teachers just spent the week at Cooper-Hewitt, participating in our on-going City of Neighborhoods program for educators. This year, the museum invited around forty teachers from New Orleans to take part in a week-long study of how design can work in the classroom, with a focus on exploring one’s local community.
