HYPOTHEkids Expands into Janus Space in Manhattanville

HYPOTHEkids (Hk) has expanded from its existing space at Harlem Biospace in the Manhattanville Factory District into its first dedicated office at Janus Property Company’s 460 W. 126th St. across the street. Hk will use the space for administrative purposes including the distribution of science kits, called HYPOTHEkits, to community-based organizations serving students throughout New York.

“Especially during the pandemic, access to educational resources has been so strained for many New York families. We’re thrilled to be a part of HYPOTHEkids’s growth as they expand beyond our life science incubator,” said Janus principal Scott Metzner. “Since our founding, one of our goals has been to create opportunities for the widest array of user groups, paying special attention to locally-based not-for-profit organizations.”

A Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) education and youth talent development initiative, Hk aims to prepare students for the high-tech economy of the future
