Curriculum Support

YOUNG scientists attend TC every other week to use equipment and materials that support their science curriculum.

The Science for Young Learners program invites 100 second graders from the Margaret Douglas Elementary School, in Morningside Heights, to visit the College every week. During the science class, their teachers engage in a range of pedagogical strategies and team-teaching with TC faculty.

Lisa Wright, director, says: “We want children to come into TC and have a sense of belonging here. It is important that TC is a part of their neighborhood.”

The program is run and fully funded by the Hollingworth Center, which also offers workshops for parents.
