Come to the Museum this Saturday, June 6, to meet the brilliant minds participating in the Urban Advantage Science Expo. In partnership with the Department of Education, the program—now in its eleventh year—allows students in public middle schools throughout the five boroughs to participate in semester long-term science investigations at the Museum and seven other participating institutions including Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The New York Botanical Garden, New York Hall of Science, Queens Botanical Garden, Staten Island Zoo, New York Aquarium, and the Bronx Zoo. The student projects will be on display in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life and other halls on Saturday, June 6, starting at 10 am.
