Gavriela Carver is a participant in the Museum's Science Research Mentoring Program. As a high school junior she spends up to four hours each week during the school year working in a Museum science lab.
On June 7, 2014, the Museum celebrated more than 50,000 New York City middle school students who took part in the Urban Advantage Science Initiative this school year.
As the Urban Advantage Middle School Science Initiative celebrates a 10-year milestone this year, stories abound about how the program has helped New York City public middle-school students delve more deeply into science.
Change lives. Teach science. That's the call to action for the Museum’s 15-month Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program, the first urban teacher residency program offered by a museum. On Sunday, January 5, the MAT program is hosting an Open House.
