Invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship (i2e) is NYU-Poly’s fundamental new way of approaching academics and research by arming faculty and students with the tools, resources, and inspiration to turn their 
research into applications, products, and services that take flight as faculty- and student-owned companies.

The Summer Institute for STEM Educators is an introduction to the i2e classroom model and into the world of cutting-edge research that aims to solve both global 
and local problems.

All 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. Various experimental techniques will be presented.
