									Virtual World Design Consultants Needed
Middle school minority youth at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY, are
creating the Virtual Hall of Science in a universe of virtual worlds called EDUni-NY. The
Virtual Hall of Science is an NSF-funded career development project for future scientists
and science educators. The project aims to put the medium of virtual worlds into the
hands of the kids who love it and empower them to use it to create fun science-related
experiences for each other. Their exhibits will be shared with students and teachers
around New York State, who will take Virtual Field Trips to this virtual museum from
computer labs in their schools.

These development teams need your help and your moral support. Join their Design
