We've been busy tweaking and improving Mannahatta2409.org since launching our original beta version earlier this Spring- if you haven't recently, stop by to create a vision or peruse visions that other users have made.

WCS is currently in the process of selecting ten high schools and middle schools around New York City to partner with on developing and implementing STEM curriculum focused around Mannahatta2409. Participation in this program would grant schools full support from WCS educators and 2409 developers, as well as the opportunity to develop curriculum that will be disseminated across the country during the 2014-5 school year. Please share the following link with any schools or educators that might be interested in applying: http://bit.ly/M2409apply.
