Workshops will provide an informed understanding of what technical and research professionals do. You will be exposed to experimental techniques, design skills, teamwork and the tools of the trade in an effort to establish and enhance your lesson plans. A new free technology application you can use in the classroom will be presented. CLASSROOM TOPICS n Collaborative Partnerships between High Schools and Universities n Making Physics Fun n NYU-Poly’s Approach to Science and Engineering—i2e n Creativity and Inventiveness in High School STEM Curriculum n Reviews of Research Projects for High School Students n Introduction to Business Incubators and Patents n Robotics for High School Students n Uses of Technology in the Classroom n Introduction to Engineering Laboratories (Interactive Lab Experience) It starts in the classroom... In this program our objective is to bring creativity and innovation into the high school STEM curriculum…to think like an inventor, you have to put down the textbook and get your hands dirty. Project-based coursework confronts students with problems that don’t have easy solutions. By figuring out the best solution, students learn to push their thinking, refine their designs, and develop a taste for invention and innovation. NYU-Poly will provide n Housing for 5 days/4 nights in the Sheraton Hotel, www.sheratonbrooklyn.com n 10 Meals: Tuesday-dinner; Wednesday-breakfast, lunch and dinner; Thursday-breakfast, lunch and dinner; Friday-breakfast, lunch and dinner n Classroom and laboratory space, and materials n Transportation to all off-site locations via subway Grows in the laboratory... Some have called what’s going on in the halls of NYU-Poly a “research renaissance,” a return to the spirited, rigorous scientific exploration that contributed to such life-altering advancements as the mass production of penicillin, the laser and cell phone technology. Learn about NYU-Poly’s Annual Undergraduate Summer Research Program, which gives undergraduates invaluable, hands-on research experience.
