  • Congrats Class of 2016!

    Congrats to all our scholars who are graduating high school this year! As Director of Youth Learning and Research at AMNH, Dr. Preeti Gupta, stated at this year's Student Research Colloquium: "You are all not ordinary students. You have each made significant contributions to the field of science." We know that you each will continue to lead the future of STEM!

Core Beliefs

  • The Consortium Programs disrupt inequities in STEM, and create new paths of access.

We believe underrepresentation in STEM fields and studies is a result of social and economic inequities, and is not a portrayal of potential. In fact, when provided with the resources, access and supports all young people can thrive in STEM. 

  • Rigorous, authentic research in high school strengthens STEM academics and careers long-term.

Alumni of the Consortium's inaugural program, the Science Research and Mentoring Program at the American Museum of Natural History, have chosen STEM majors in college at a significantly higher rate, declare their majors sooner and earn higher grades in science and math. 

  • Science is more effective and meaningful as a community.

The Consortium Programs match successful scientists and researchers as mentors with scholars to help cultivate confidence and give valuable insight into STEM careers. Additionally, scholars are part of a cohort that meets regularly to get additional support from events featuring renowned scientists to college readiness workshops. Once a part of the NYC Science Research Mentoring Consortium, one is a member of a long-lasting, supportive community.
