Tune in to WNET New York Public Media on Saturday, October 3 to watch the Museum’s educational programs featured in a seven-hour broadcast for American Graduate Day. Produced by WNET in partnership with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, this day of programming is part of a long-term public media call to action to raise high school graduation rates. The segment featuring the Museum will focus on its science education efforts, highlighting the Science Research and Mentoring Program (SRMP).
SRMP offers high school students the opportunity to join ongoing research projects under the guidance of Museum scientists. Students can choose between two concentrations, and then explore a number of different scientific disciplines within each to focus on. During the segment, you’ll hear from several AMNH educators and students who have participated in the program.
The Museum is among 40 local and national programs and organizations being featured on American Graduate Day. The broadcast airs from 11am-6pm ET.
