The Fern Cell Atlas is an ongoing collaborative project between NYBG scientists and SCI Network NYC Interns. It is an atlas of fern sporangia – morphology and anatomy.
SCI Network NYC
The SCI Network is a consortium of eight science-based cultural institutions committed to providing high-quality STEM internships to New York City youth. In 2022, we collectively hosted 900 interns who gained experience in a variety of fields, including animal care, horticulture, science communication, teaching, and administration.
- Increase the number of youth from historically underrepresented communities in STEM internships.
- Develop systems to connect interns with employment opportunities across institutions. We call this “latticing in action.”
- Develop a plan to leverage New York City’s Summer Youth Employment Program to benefit our interns and institutions.
- Demonstrate our collective impact through evaluation, storytelling, and advocacy.
