Turning High School Students into Cyber Sleuths

At NYU Tandon School of Engineering, summer brings a deep dive into a pool of STEM experiments

The women-only CS4CS class is part of a larger program at the [NYU] Tandon school called STEMNow, which this summer is bringing more than 700 middle- and high-school students and 130 teachers to the Downtown Brooklyn campus for deep dives into the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and math). … “The program isn’t just speaking and talking, it’s actually doing,” said Vikram Kapila, a Tandon professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering. Marking its fifth year in operation, STEMNow celebrated recently with speeches from Tandon’s dean, Katepalli Sreenivasan, and New York City schools chancellor Carmen Farina.
