Work Based Learning
UTC STEM Scholars Program
June 15, 2017
There are not enough science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals to fill all the open positions. So, the New York Academy of Sciences teamed up with United Technologies Corporation (UTC) to transform the lives of enterprising high-school-aged students by helping to open their eyes to exciting opportunities in STEM. Each student receives customized, free one-on-one mentorship from a STEM professional, online coursework, and a global community of like-minded peers.
Deadline to apply is Thursday, June 15th. Below is a flyer for more information. If you have any questions, please contact: STEMScholars@nyas.org

The 9th Annual Emoti-Con takes place June 17th at Bartos Forum, New York Public Library. Emoti-Con is NYC's biggest showcase for young designers, makers, technologists, and tinkerers who believe in digital innovation as a tool for positive change in the world around them. Students in grades 6-12 or enrolled in a GED program are invited to sign up, either as individuals or teams. All students will present their work science-fair style and will engage with peers to forge new network connections and also receive feedback from industry professional judges who are leaders in various areas of the media and technology industry.
