DTCC Cycle for STEM
Support friends, family, colleagues and a uniquely authentic STEM education program for New York City students. Help 60+ young people earn a spot to study in a cutting-edge research lab. Last year, with your help and a match from DTCC, you raised $50,000 for high quality STEM programs, including ARISE which provides an authentic STEM research experience to NYC high school students at New York University. Donations from DTCC friends and family doubled from 2016 to 2017 and increased another 50% from 2017 to 2018!
This year let's break that growth record and help the NYU Center for K12 STEM Education provide free, high-quality programs like ARISE to even more students in summer 2019. With your support, we aim to increase the number of ARISE students 21% this year, from 56 to 68 lab placements.
Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE) is designed for tenth and eleventh grade students with little or no access to high-quality STEM education experiences, students of color, and those from low-income backgrounds. This seven-week summer program features challenging college-level coursework, science skills training and authentic lab research under the guidance of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty.
Students contribute to a wide range of STEM fields, from civil and urban engineering, composite materials, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science and cyber security, to molecular design, biology, evolutionary anthropology, robotics, sensing and protein engineering. Now in its seventh year, 229 students have completed the program, presented their research at the annual ARISE colloquium, and many students have continued on to STEM higher education. Several have published with their labs in peer reviewed publications and presented at conferences.
Applications to ARISE grew from under 30 in its first year to 472 in 2018, showing genuine demand among young people for high quality STEM experiences. 98% of students admitted to ARISE complete the program, and 62% of graduates are female. 40% are the first in their family to go to college.
Please join this campaign in support of the Center and DTCC’s efforts to support STEM education.
About the Center and Your Support for STEM Education
The NYU Tandon School of Engineering's Center for K12 STEM Education provides in-depth and ongoing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education to NYC elementary, middle and high school students and STEM training to teachers. Through a suite of programs, the Center provides access to the kind of high-quality, sustained STEM teaching and learning that k-12 students and teachers need to succeed in these fields. Over half our participants are girls and young women, and we are dedicated to providing STEM learning opportunities to economically and demographically diverse groups of young New Yorkers. In summer 2018 alone, 550 New York City area students and nearly 60 teachers attended free programs on the School of Engineering's downtown Brooklyn campus.
