Each year, there are 20 projects covering a diverse range of topics in the physical and life sciences represented at the Museum, from astrophysics to invertebrate zoology. Students collaborate in teams of 2-3 with a mentor on a selected project. The project lineup evolves annually. Students identify their top 5 choices and get matched with one mentor. Each team meets twice a week after school and the exact schedule is determined within each small group. But the mentor’s availability takes priority. See examples below of recent projects.
