The New York Academy of Sciences is proud to announce the inaugural event for the NYC Science Education Initiative!

The Science Slam promises to be both a rewarding and entertaining evening filled with insights and ideas you can take back to the classroom. Whether you’re a science educator or considering it as a career or if you simply want to learn more about some of the great work being done by today’s science and math teachers, this is an event you won’t want to miss. Attendees will hear directly from outstanding science teachers on their best ideas about engaging students in science and math.

The presentation will also include insight from a New York City Teaching Fellow who teaches middle school.
