Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott of the New York City Department of Education is expected to join students, families, teachers, administrators, and members of City Council under the big blue whale in the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life on Sunday, June 12, to see more than 300 science exit projects presented by over 800 middle school students at the seventh annual Urban Advantage Science Expo.

The Urban Advantage Middle School Science Initiative is a pioneering public-private partnership between the New York City Department of Education and a Museum-led consortium of eight institutions that also includes the New York Hall of Science, the Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, the New York Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the Queens Botanical Garden, and the Staten Island Zoo that has helped thousands of 7th and 8th graders pursue investigations at eight science-rich New York City institutions and to complete their science exit projects, a requirement of the New York City Department of Education for advancement into high school.
