The 8th annual AMNH College Fair, was held at the Museum on Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM. With AmNH' extensive programs serve over 650 high school students annually. These students are future scientists, engineers, science policy makers, and science literate citizens, each of whom looks forward to learning about your outstanding programs. In addition alumni, parents, and student representatives were also welcomed. Should you need to you may directly ship materials to AMNH at the address below. If you provide the appropriate container and a pre-labeled and prepaid return information we will gladly return your resources.
Because AmNH is located in an urban setting it serves a great number of traditionally underrepresented students who are eager to hear about the various academic, financial, and social supports your institution provides.
AMNH offers a wide variety of opportunities for New York City high school students. Each year, a series of after-school courses in topics such as genetics, biodiversity, earth science, astronomy, anthropology, and art. High school students also participate in internships at the museum, where they do research in the sciences, anthropology, and work with the public. These students consistently demonstrate a keen interest in the physical sciences, life sciences and social sciences in addition to a sincere desire to continue on that path.
Their high school programs serve several hundred students per year from diverse backgrounds, which serve both public and private high school students from all five boroughs of New York City. This college fair helped to expose bright and ethnically diverse group of high school students to colleges that offer high-quality physical, life, and social science programs like yours. About 200 students attended the fair along with their parents and siblings. In the past college representatives have remarked on the intimate nature of such fairs and the unique opportunity representatives have to talk at length with students.
NOAA-CREST members also participated in the event and several students from CCNY' High School of Math and Science (HSME) attended already knew about CREST opportunities and would apply for summer internships in summer 2011.
