NYU-Poly is pleased to announce 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).
This seven week program includes: college level coursework, a high level research experience in one of several NYU-Poly faculty labs, and mentoring in that placement by a graduate or postdoctoral student. In the coursework, students will be introduced to engineering concepts and principles, the scientific method and ethics, research practices and lab safety.
With their mentors, ARISE participants will spend the latter four weeks of the program in these placements where they will make practical contributions to their lab’s research objectives. These objectives are in areas such as mechanical and civil engineering; information systems and cyber security; materials science and robotics; protein engineering and molecular design; and, bio-interfacial engineering and diagnostics.
Students will also learn to present their research and findings, and will make a presentation at the program’s conclusion to the NYU-Poly faculty and student ARISE participants as well as other academic experts.
Through a grant from the Pinkerton Foundation, ARISE is intended to provide an advanced STEM research opportunity to New York City students with little or no access to high quality STEM education experiences. Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low income backgrounds, are strongly encouraged to apply.
