American Museum of Natural History Programs for Teens
The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) has two free, full-day programs for youth coming up during school breaks. Playing with Dinos takes place during Regents week, January 28-30, 2015. Youth in grades 9-12 will delve deep into AMNH's dinosaur halls and educational game design to help staff develop quick, fun, and easy games for museum visitors to play. Killer Snails takes place over February break, February 16-20, 2015. Youth in grades 8-12 will help to develop a card game to be distributed by AMNH, working with scientists and game designers to learn about venom toxins, game design, and killer snails. Youth can apply here for Playing with Dinos and here for Killer Snails. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
