Urban Advantage

The American Museum of Natural History, along with seven other cultural institutions, is working with the New York Department of Education in a program supporting middle school student long term science investigations (formerly called Exit Projects).

The program provides professional development for teachers; equipment and supplies for schools; and field trips and vouchers for students, families, teachers, and administrators.
