Made possible by a partnership between the New York City Department of Education and a Museum-led consortium of eight institutions including the New York Hall of Science, the Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, the New York Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Queens Botanical Garden, and the Staten Island Zoo, the Urban Advantage Program emphasizes evidence-based inquiry and learning through authentic encounters with science. 

Featuring projects on topics ranging from the foraging habits of the Scarlet Ibis at the Bronx Zoo to how to design the most efficient rocket, the Urban Advantage Science Expo, from 1 to 4 pm this Saturday, June 8, features the work of students from all five boroughs of the City.
