Dear CityLab Community,
Since 1991, we have had the privilege of working with you and your students through a variety of laboratory-based programs in the biosciences. As you may know, CityLab has received support from the National Institutes of Health Science Education Partnership Award program. We recently learned that federal funding for science education has been reorganized and the NIH will no longer fund K-12 science education activities. Consequently, CityLab’a future is uncertain. Until we learn more, we have chosen to postpone scheduling for academic year 2013-2014 CityLab programs.
CityLab has enjoyed tremendous success thanks to the participation and input of professional educators such as you. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we respond to these developments. Look forward to communication from us in the near future regarding programming and scheduling opportunities at CityLab.
Don DeRosa, Carl Franzblau, Carla Romney – Directors
Julia Hammer Assistant Director
Mark Jurman, Meg Sutton – Educators
Save the date!
Scheduling for the 2013-2014 academic year will take place on Monday, May 20.
