STEM Mentoring and Education Programs
1000 Girls, 1000 Futures connects STEM-focused high school girls to dynamic, motivated female mentors during a year-long virtual science education program. Participants gain access to innovative programming focused on developing essential 21st century skills and become part of a strong network of female STEM leaders from around the world! Accepted students and mentors receive free membership to the New York Academy of Sciences!
The Junior Academy introduces exceptional students to an online community where they gain access to best-in-class STEM resources and work together to solve real-world problems. STEM professionals mentor student teams during 60-day innovation challenges sponsored by industry-leading companies via Launchpad, our interactive challenge platform. Students and mentors can participate from anywhere in the world and have multiple challenges a year to choose from. Accepted students and mentors receive free membership to the New York Academy of Sciences!
The Scientist-in-Residence program matches scientists with NYC public school teachers to bring scientific inquiry to life in the classroom. By combining their content and pedagogical expertise, each scientist-teacher pair will develop and implement a year-long project that prepares students to engage in authentic research and spark their interest in STEM learning.
The Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program recruits undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs and STEM professionals to mentor elementary and middle school students at afterschool sites around NYC. Participating Mentors receive training on facilitating one of our hands-on courses, and work with a site staff partner to implement weekly sessions.
New York City is a leading market for STEM jobs, and yet many children here have never met a “real” scientist. That’s why the Academy is working to put a scientist in every underserved public middle school across all five boroughs.
Sponsored by United Technologies, this exciting initiative engages students, teachers, and STEM professionals to identify and inspire the next generation of STEM talent. The program offers free educational resources, one-to-one mentorship, online courses, and the opportunity to compete in scientific & engineering challenges.
The Global STEM Alliance now offers online and in-person professional development for K-12 educators. Training is available for both individual educators and for groups, all created in alignment with research-based principles and STEM teaching best practices.
In today's global information- and technology-driven economy, successful individuals must be both STEM literate and equipped with 21st-century skills. The STEM Certification Program addresses this need by reviewing and certifying materials aligned with our STEM Education Framework.
The Next Scholars Program pairs female undergraduates with women in STEM fields through an online learning platform. Mentors work with Mentees (a.k.a. "Scholars") from across the United States to help them develop essential 21st century skills and advance their computer science literacy.
The New York Academy Sciences’ Annual Global STEM Alliance (GSA) Summit, is a two-day event dedicated to building a global community of STEM leaders. The event brings together students and mentors from the GSA programs from countries across the globe.
The United Technologies’ STEM U Mentoring Program is designed to inspire and motivate the next generation of STEM talent through mentorship, 21st century skill development, and networking through our online platform.
