CrEST High School Apprenticeship

Creativity in Engineering, Science and Technology (CrEST)


This NYU Tandon School of Engineering program on our downtown Brooklyn campus provides 60 hours of training to selected high school students with the option of receiving  elective credit. You will conceive, prototype and  build creative, interactive  devices by  learning and applying computer science, electronics, mechanical systems, physical computing, 3D printing, robotics, and other STEM disciplines. Offered in partnership with ExpandED Schools we are currently recruiting for the class of 2018. Students in the program will train with us from February through June, on Saturdays. Participants will then teach what they learned in public workshops for two weekends in late May and June. Beginning in July, students that complete the entire program will  teach “STEM Camp” to middle school students through a possible paid summer internship.
