Queens Botanical Garden - Where people, plants, and cultures meet
Urban Advantage at Queens Botanical Garden

       

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.
