CrEST: Creativity in Engineering, Science, and Technology is an innovative 60-hour course for high school students on applying physical computing, mechanical systems and electronics to design and build interactive devices.
The CrEST program emphasizes hands-on, lab-based demonstrations, experiments, and projects that offer important learning experiences related to circuitry, electronics, mechanical systems, physical computing, robotics and other STEM disciplines. The CrEST program was designed by NYU-Poly’s Center for K-12 STEM Education, and the curriculum is adapted from courses taught at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) by Dustyn Roberts, a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at NYU-Poly.
This program was developed through a partnership with ExpandED Options. We welcome our second class of students on campus in late February 2014.
