All of our programs use the natural and built environment as laboratories for active learning. Our inquiry and project-based approach to STEM strives to empower youth to improve the urban environment.


CityScience explorations are short-term STEM programs that immediately improve after-school STEM programming by providing trained instructors, time-tested curricula, fun activities, and durable science supplies. With our inquiry-based projects, youth discover STEM connections in their local context.

Our current exploration opportunities include:

  • Food in the Big Apple
  • Circuit City
  • Invertebrate Metropolis

CityScience partnerships are long-term capacity building commitments that improve collaboration between after-school staff and school teachers. We partner with school administrators and teachers on-site to craft and implement integrated science curricula that engages students and improves performance across grade levels and subject areas.

Our current partnership opportunities include:

  • Building Robotics Partnership
