NYIT Partners with Intrepid Museum on STEM Education During Women’s History Month

NYIT- Intrepid Museum Education Programming Partnership
Women’s History Month: March 2011
Salute to Women Programs
 
NYIT and the Intrepid Museum have formed a partnership in celebration of the museum’s first Salute to Women program during Women’s History Month in March. Funds raised will provide resources for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) educational programming for girls and for programming at the Intrepid, in order to help the next generation of women make their mark in history. And, during Science and Engineering Week, the Intrepid and NYIT will showcase why STEM studies are so exciting and important!  For more information, click here.
 
 
Salute to Women: Girls in Science and Engineering Day
Sunday, March 20
11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
 
NYIT is one four organizations that will be providing families with an ongoing activities and/or demonstration. Below is a basic description of NYIT activities and demonstrations that will engage visitors:
 
1. Is there a Doctor in the House? - Come and learn how Doctors prepare for a medical emergency! Meet our robotic patient and practice your clinical skills. Listen to her heart and lungs, and see what a human airway looks like.  Examine x-rays and make your own diagnosis. This is a “hands on” session that integrates health and technology with a simulated patient, designed to teach physicians how to respond to a variety of medical emergencies.  Come and see how medicine will be taught in the future.
2. Robots - Two teams from NYIT’s engineering department will demonstrate their robot design of Stair Climbing Robot and Searching and Sorting Robot
3. Groundwater in Action: How an Aquifer Works - This is a demonstration of how an aquifer works to store, move and release groundwater. A physical model of an aquifer will be used to show pumping wells, water level changes and the spread of pollution.
 
The Intrepid Education Department will also showcase our science activities and workshops. For more information, click here.
 
Salute to Women: Youth Leadership Conference
Tuesday, March 22
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
 
NYIT is sponsoring a unique Youth Leadership Conference, during which 125 female students from the New York City Department of Education will attend at no cost. The Youth Leadership Conference is a day-long event at the Intrepid Museum during which students will hear about the presenters accomplishments, their career paths, personal journeys and life experiences, followed by small group mentoring sessions to learn more about the STEM fields. In addition, students will experience in-depth interactive tours of the ship with Intrepid’s educators, discuss related exhibits and enjoy lunch in the Intrepid’s restored mess deck.  Throughout the day, students will keep reflection logs to catalog thoughts, questions, and comments about the day’s activities, and then refer to these logs to help them create presentations that represent what they learned during their journey.  Back in the classroom, teachers can draw from these reflection logs to facilitate further discussion. For more information, click here.
 
The following NYIT representatives have agreed to be part of the program:
Nada Anid, dean, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences
Patricia Chute, dean, School of Health Professions
Cecilia Dong, assistant professor, electrical and computer engineering, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences

Engineering Students Make a ‘Clean Sweep’

Engineering Students Make a 'Clean Sweep'

NYIT students in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences captured first place (winning all matches) in the "Clean Sweep" event of the regional Vex Robotics Competition held on Feb. 20-21 in Baltimore, Md. The students, who were selected to participate by NYIT's Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) chapter, designed, built, and programmed an innovative and autonomous remote-controlled robot that scored the highest number of points in the contest as well as taking home the best design award. The students say they hope their win will inspire fellow and future NYIT student engineers. Next stop: the Vex Robotics World Championship in Dallas, April 22-24. Pictured (clockwise from bottom left) are team members Anthony Brown, Robert Domingo, Robert Roman, and Paul Ulezko.
