Programs for Educators
We offer a variety of hands-on programs to increase the number of highly qualified K-12 STEM teachers.
Robotics and Entrepreneurship ITEST
The ITEST Robotics and Entrepreneurship project at New York University Tandon School of Engineering is a professional development opportunity for New York area high school science and math teachers. The project uses robotics and engineering design practices as the curriculum focus to create hands-on science and math curricula. Each summer, two teachers and four students from eight high schools across New York City will learn, build, and evaluate robots and related technology at NYU Tandon, then implement elective robotics classes and capstone projects at their schools.
Research Experiences for Teachers (RET)
Science and Mechatronics Aided Research for Teachers with an Entrepreneurship expeRience (SMARTeR) at New York University Tandon School of Engineering is a professional development opportunity for NYC Middle School and High School teachers. Funded by the National Science Foundation, under its Research Experience for Teachers Site program, SMARTeR helps teachers provide their students enhanced STEM educational content through mechatronics research and entrepreneurship training.
