WHERE THE FUTURE
SciTech Scity is a curated community ("mini-city") of
tech entrepreneurs, scientists, students, and other forward thinking people and organizations working together to create a better future for all.
LEARN. WORK. LIVE.
Liberty Science Center High School will be a world-class public magnet STEM academy that will be operated by the Hudson County Schools of Technology and provide programs in Earth (Sustainable Engineering and Climate Science), Life (Biological Sciences), and Space (Astrophysics) to 400 students in grades 9 - 12 from across Hudson County. LSC will arrange for the students to have intensive mentorships and work experiences with the companies and scientists at Edge Works and at LSC itself. LSC will also create preparatory programs for middle-school students from under-served communities in Jersey City and Hudson County who are passionate about science and aspire to attend the new high school.
Edge Works will be the eight-story business incubation hub of SciTech Scity consisting of the Co-Creation Center, a 40,000-SF state-of-the-art conference center and bleeding-edge tech exhibition gallery, and The Works, 60,000 SF of research and development labs, workspaces, and co-working areas for dozens of start-ups plus skunkworks suites, product showcases, consumer testing labs, and offices for select well-established companies.
Scholars Village will be residential housing being developed by Alpine Residential for innovators, scientists, entrepreneurs, STEM graduate students, and individuals and families who desire to be a part of the SciTech Scity community. These residents will have the opportunity to test important new high-tech products in their homes before the rest of the world.
SciTech Scity is already home to the Liberty Science Center, the largest interactive science center in the NY/NJ metro area and home to the biggest and best planetarium and digital theater in the Western Hemisphere.
The Public Commons will be four-acres of outdoor activations that encourage exploration, creativity, collaboration, and innovation. It will feature an events plaza comparable in size to the skating rink and outdoor area at Rockefeller Center for performances, concerts, maker fairs, farmers markets, huge participatory science experiments, hackathons, art projects, and food-truck festivals.
"Scity" (pronounced "city") is our portmanteau for a city infused with science and scientific creativity. SciTech Scity is a collaboration between the City of Jersey City and Liberty Science Center, New Jersey's most visited cultural institution, to bolster local education and economic growth in key STEM sectors. Located just five miles from Lower Manhattan and nine miles from Newark Liberty International Airport, Scitech Scity is in Liberty State Park, near the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty.
