SRMP Curricula for Teachers
The Science Research Mentoring Program provides New York City high school students with the opportunity to undertake year-long research projects with AMNH scientists. Students conduct research in the divisions of Astrophysics, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Vertebrate and Invertebrate Zoology, and Anthropology. Prior to their research year, students complete a series of 6-week long after-school courses designed to prepare them for the research experience. Co-taught and co-designed by Museum educators and scientists, SRMP course curriculum connects content, theory, and methodologies to the current, cutting-edge research of Museum scientists.
These curricula are designed to be taught in the Museum and make use of Museum resources and scientists; however, many lessons can be taught anywhere. We encourage you to use any or all of the curriculum below, and will add curriculum as we complete documentation of our efforts. If you have questions about any of the curricula, please email us at SRMP@amnh.org.
