Center for K12 STEM Education

IMG_0698NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Center for K12 STEM Education designs and delivers high-quality and innovative teaching and learning programs for students and educators in STEM disciplines. For nearly 20 years – and with $20+ million in public, philanthropic and corporate funds  – our faculty and the Center for K-12 STEM Education have developed and redefined programs that stress the importance of STEM Education at all levels of K-12 Education. We have been strongly supported by the NYU Tandon School of Engineering as it has a long history of engaging K-12 students in hands-on, kinesthetic learning by emphasizing the importance of putting theory into practice, using real-world connections and cutting-edge technology.

IMG_0766The Center’s mission is to provide access to and opportunities in high quality K-12 STEM Education and widening the pipeline for higher education. Our methodolody focuses on utilizing the passion and expertise of staff and students at NYU Tandon to develop and teach the activity based curricula to younger students and their teachers in order to encourage others to lead the programs on their own.

In support of this mission, the School of Engineering’s work reflects a commitment to:IMG_0782

  1. Strengthen academic preparation for K-12 students towards advanced STEM studies, higher education and careers through innovative, hands-on programs;
  2. Help students and teachers develop STEM-based and related skills, as well as an understanding of how these skills relate to and are strengthened by “real-world” applications;
  3. Share the expertise of our faculty and students and their exciting, interdisciplinary research and applied work in STEM; and,
  4. Contribute substantively to the national movement to improve K-12 STEM education.

Our objective: that K-12 students and teachers discover the excitement of STEM education through our programs and that anyone is able to transform the world by understanding how it works.
