2010 Urban Advantage Science Expo

The 2010 Urban Advantage Science Expo, which was held at the American Museum of Natural History on June 12, provided a grand finale to an extraordinary sixth year for the Urban Advantage Middle School Science Initiative. More than 700 students brought 310 science projects (a 56 percent increase over last year) to exhibit in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, the Grand Gallery, and the Hall of Northwest Coast Indians. Visitor numbers also rose more than 50 percent from 2009, with 2,230 attending this year's expo. A recent preliminary analysis by the Institute for Education and Social Policy at New York University, an independent evaluator, has shown a statistically significant difference on student Intermediate Level Science (ILS) assessment between students at Urban Advantage schools compared to non-Urban Advantage schools.
