Mayor de Blasio’s push for early education for the city’s youngest children is getting its own place for learning science.

Construction of a new, 306-seat center for science, technology and math education geared to pre-K students was announced last week by the mayor and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, far left, at the New York Hall of Science. State Sen. Jessica Ramos, second from left, Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz joined them.

The $42 million center will be built on part of the museum’s parking lot in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
