The New York Hall of Science has partnered with the Greater Southern Tier BOCES SciCentr program on a project to engage an ethnically and economically diverse group of young people in creating a Virtual Hall of Science (VHOS). This youth cohort will design, build and staff a virtual science center, working with science and education professionals along the way. Participants will be trained as exhibit designers, builders, active exhibit guides and mentors. Over the course of the project, the youth will acquire Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) knowledge and a range of information and communication technology (ICT) competencies. Acting as a mentoring/governing group, participants will staff the virtual space and encourage and support new visitors to explore STEM activities.
