Science Minors: Beyond the Books
Justin Barrett, a four-year veteran of the Museum's Science Minors program, saw his Museum experience as a stepping stone to a bright future. "In school, we learn science out of a book," he said. "But at the Museum, we learn through hands-on experiences, and that's made me a better science student. With Science Minors, I didn't have to wait until my junior year to learn about chemistry. I also got to lead demonstrations on genetics and the human heart, and train younger students. This has been a great experience I'll never forget. The program helped me improve my speaking skills. And because I've met other students from around the city—and from different backgrounds—I've learned a lot about people."
