|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.
