#STEMnow NYU Tandon Day of Learning

Open to the Public

#STEMnow NYU Tandon Day of Learning is a daylong behind-the-scenes demonstration and tour — from the comfort of your computer or smartphone — of the various K12 STEM activities taking place all summer and throughout the year here on campus. We will take you through an entire day of learning on social media, allowing you to explore artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, smart cities, wireless, and more, right alongside our participants! 

Starting at 9:00 am on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, we will begin social media coverage on NYU Tandon’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels. We will also be sharing content on The Center for K12 STEM Education, Facebook Twitter, and Instagram channels. We will be using #STEMnow in all posts and encourage you to engage with us online and share the amazing learning experience taking place all day long on your channels!
