This is a multi-week program in partnership with the Dedalus Foundation through which Teen Curators develop an exhibition of artwork around a specific theme that allows teen artists to express themselves, share stories, ask questions, and start conversations among artworks, artists and gallery visitors. Through teamwork, curators gain valuable communication and organization skills, knowledge of art, culture, and the curatorial process. They also get the opportunity to share their voice in the NYC arts scene. The theme for this year’s exhibition will be centered around Climate Justice.

The Science Research Mentoring Program is a free two-year program open to any New York City high school student, entering the tenth or eleventh grade. Students are linked to research mentors who are museum scientists and educators working in the fields of anthropology, evolution, biodiversity, genetics and conversation biology. Students receive in-depth training and support that enables them to take part in scientific research conducted at the Museum. The focus is on students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science- women, minorities, and person with disabilities, or who have lacked opportunities to pursue their scientific interests because of limited access to the mentors and facilities. This program is designed to expose high school students to different careers in the biological sciences and anthropology, with an emphasis on scientific research, in order to prepare them and make them stronger candidates for college science programs.
