The NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering has recently joined the #uifresh campaign that aims to expose all incoming freshmen students to the types of experiences in design thinking, entrepreneurship, and innovation in the hope of attracting more new students in the STEM disciplines.
The organizers of the #uifresh campaign will be working together to hold experiential learning opportunities that will connect first-year students to peer communities of makers and innovators at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.
During the 2015 White House Science Fair on March 23, President Barack Obama announced the launch of the campaign together with a number of other initiatives to inspire and prepare more young people to excel in the STEM fields.
