2013 NYU-POLY/ ncsssmst Summer Institute for STEM EDUCATORS Make Science and Mathematics Exciting! Tuesday, July 16th–Saturday, July 20th Apply now

Bring invention, innovation & entrepreneurship to your classroom i2e = invention, innovation and entrepreneurship i2e is NYU-Poly’s fundamental new way of approaching academics and research by arming students with the tools, resources, and inspiration to begin research and turn their discoveries into applications, products, and services that take flight as student-owned companies. The Summer Institute for STEM Educators is an introduction to the i2e classroom model that includes integrating creativity, inventiveness and technology into your STEM curriculum. 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.

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.
