Urban Advantage (UA), founded in 2004, is the Gottesman Center’s hallmark partnership program with the NYC Department of Education and seven other science-rich cultural institutions. UA uses the Next Generation Science Standards, Ambitious Science Teaching, and the Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education framework to support participating schools through professional learning opportunities for teachers, parent coordinators, and administrators. UA participation offers access to classroom teaching resources and equipment, the abundant resources of the UA partner institutions, and educational outreach to UA students and their families. UA currently partners with approximately 300 public Elementary and Middle Schools serving nearly 100,000 students and 1,000 teachers.
