AMNH Lang Science Program
This year, students currently in 5th grade will be chosen to become part of an exciting multi-year educational relationship with the Museum. These students will experience the Museum through classes incorporating hands-on exploration, behind-the-scenes adventures, and content-rich programming that aligns with the science standards and focuses on biology, anthropology, and physical sciences (astronomy and earth science).
The program begins with a three-week summer program based at the Museum and continues into the school year with meetings that take place on two Saturdays per month. This alternating summer/school year cycle continues until the program concludes, coinciding with the students'' graduation from high school.
Students who are in the 5th grade (or homeschool equivalent) in New York City are eligible to apply. We are no longer receiving applications for the 2013-2014 school year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at either Lang@amnh.org (preferred) or by phone at 212-313-7172.
