city science

From Go Local:

A team of researchers at EcoTarium, a science and nature center located in Worcester, Massachusetts, has been awarded a $250,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to integrate the science of urban systems into their new “City Science” exhibit. The project will develop prototype exhibits about the science people encounter in their everyday lives and explore the connections between cities and the people, plants, and animals that live in them. It will bring together staff from six other science museums in California and New England to review the exhibit prototypes and to discuss how their museums can develop new urban ecology exhibits.
