Some of Chicago Public Schools' youngest students may soon be able to use the city's museum resources to boost their science skills.

CPS pre-schoolers were at the Field Museum Wednesday where Mayor Daley and schools chief Ron Huberman announced a new program. It uses the expertise of the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, and the Museum of Science and Industry to improve early childhood science learning.

Children at the event received scientific activity kits and a visit from Sesame Street's "Elmo".
