Program Highlights

Highlights of fiscal 2014 included programs for visitors of all ages, as well as a few milestone anniversaries. Renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough spoke at the Museum, as did groundbreaking biologist Craig Venter. Festivals offered visitors a taste of the culture of Korea and marked the Museum's 35th year celebrating Kwanzaa. And in June, the Urban Advantage program celebrated a decade of supporting New York City’s public middle school science teachers and students at the annual UA Science Expo.
