NEW YORK (AP) - That’s a whale of a science fair.

Some 900 New York City middle school students will gather at the American Museum of Natural History on Saturday for one of the largest science expos in the country.

The students from the Urban Advantage Middle School Science Program will set up their displays under the museum’s giant blue whale and at other locations.

One project examines the effect of sleep deprivation on test scores. Another compares bacteria populations in different subway locations.

Institutions including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Bronx Zoo are also part of the 11-year-old science education program.

American Museum of Natural History President Ellen Futter says the program is having a “profound” educational impact.
