Urban Advantage

Urban Advantage (UA) is a standards-based partnership program designed to improve students’ understanding of scientific inquiry through collaborations between urban public school systems and science cultural institutions such as zoos, botanical gardens, museums, and science centers. We believe that their extraordinary scientific and cultural resources convey a true “urban advantage.” Traditionally, these institutions have supported formal science education goals only indirectly. UA involves institutions outside the formal education system that support the science-specific goals of the public school system.

Urban Advantage gives our science teachers and students an opportunity to attend trainings at events at premier institutions such as the American Museum of Natural History, NY Hall of Science, the Bronx Zoo, and the NY Aquarium.
