Programs and Partnerships
The CrEST program emphasizes hands-on, lab-based demonstrations, experiments, and projects that offer important learning experiences related to circuitry, electronics, mechanical systems, physical computing, robotics and other STEM disciplines.
We are pleased to invite applications for our newest K-12 STEM education program, Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE). This selective program is for academically strong, current 10th and 11th grade New York City students with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects.
Science of Smart Cities (SOSC), introduces middle school students to engineering, science and technology that make cities more livable, efficient, sustainable and safer. Hands-on activities, demonstrations and experiments integrate STEM concepts, showing how those are applied through engineering and technology to the systems and infrastructure in cities today, and how they might be applied in cities in the future.

We focus on developing lessons, curriculum and techniques that bring together STEM disciplines, concepts, and learning standards through creative hands-on projects, demonstrations and experiments. We have found that the concept of 'engineering as the application of science and technology' is a powerful lens for young people through which to view -- and truly appreciate -- the rules of the natural world.
In conjunction with our National Science Foundation (NSF) supported GK-12 Fellows Program, we now work intensively with 27 Brooklyn public schools, about 40 teachers and over 1,500 K-12 students. In this project, graduate students from diverse STEM disciplines are paired with K-12 teachers to develop and teach STEM lessons, based on the research and applied science they practice; these students are scientists and engineers "in residence" at schools. By June of this year, we will have launched three new STEM education programs in 12 months. Demand is very high among schools, teachers, after-school programs.
Our K12 STEM education program is:
- Activity based
- Promotes teamwork
- Involves mentors and
- Allows young people to engage with STEM through building, programming and research
NYU-Poly STEM Program
Hundreds of middle and high school Brooklyn students are taking part in Stem Outreach program and are competing in Robotic competitions where they learn skills in Math, Engineering, Science and Technology fields.
