Members of NYIT’s Society of Women Engineers Reach Out to Local Middleschoolers

During the Fall 2013 semester, SWE members Michelle Messenger (also the club's president in Old Westbury) and Adrianna Maldonado initiated a new outreach program for 6th graders in the New York metropolitan area. Inspired by NYIT's partnership with Citizen Schools, Messenger and Maldonado volunteered weekly at the Renaissance School of the Arts in Harlem for a period of ten weeks, during which they taught a group of middleschoolers an apprenticeship course for robotics and programming. At the end of the 10 week program, the sixth-grade students were able to make their robots successfully complete a maze course using sensors.

On her decision to reach out to these students, Messenger said, "all middle school students have the potential to discover a love of learning that will inspire and prepare them to succeed in high school, college, the workforce and civic life, but without enough relevant learning activities and involved adults, too many kids are dropping out." She found her volunteer work fulfilling, and claimed, "the students' transformation and growth was incredible and amazing to watch."

Messenger and Maldonado have plans to continue their efforts into the Spring 2014 semester, when they will return to the Renaissance School of the Arts to teach Generation Technology. This new course will teach students the basics of electricity, and give them the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of electrical engineering.

Keeping it Together with Shaun Mooney, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences Alumni

In 1984, Shaun Mooney (B.S. ’95, M.S. ’04) enlisted in the U.S. Marines out of a desire to emulate John Wayne. After serving a four-year tour, he was reactivated in 1991 to support U.S. troops during Operation: Desert Storm.

Today, Mooney is helping safeguard something that impacts every person with a smartphone, laptop, or other communications device in the entire northeast United States. As property manager for Colliers International, he oversees the energy management processes and operations at 60 Hudson Street in downtown Manhattan. Once known as the Western Union Building and home to that company’s vast underground telegraph network from 1930 to 1973, this fiber-optic anchorage houses the infrastructure that helps fuel the digital lines of communication among financial centers, government agencies, and individuals worldwide. More than 100 telecom companies are housed within the carrier hotel, including Level 3 Communications, Sirius Telecom, Verizon, Sprint, Global Crossing, and many other carriers. If the Internet had a home address in the Northeast, this would be the place.

“This is the biggest telecommunications hub in the entire world,” says Mooney. He estimates that the facilities at 60 Hudson process an estimated two billion text messages, emails, phone calls, and other communications per hour, an exponential increase over the two million messages sent daily during the Western Union days. Back then, pneumatic tubes connecting parts of New York City carried written messages inside capsules propelled by compressed air, traveling as fast as 35 miles per hour. (Text messaging, one could say, in its earliest days.)

The current telecommunications powerhouse at 60 Hudson is one of four in the United States, joining similar hubs in Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles. “These four sites are really the core of the entire country,” Mooney says, referring to the digital communications backbone of the United States. “There are companies within a mile of Manhattan that have tried to re-create this but failed financially.”

Managing the building’s infrastructure and energy systems is a key component to ensuring that 60 Hudson runs smoothly. Mooney’s day-to-day operations include conducting energy and telecom audits, tenant relations, and managing capital projects for building modifications, security upgrades, and cooling tower and generator installations, among other tasks.

Students Host SAE Car Show at NYIT

NYIT students at car show

Students in the Society of Automotive Engineers (pictured above) held the NYIT chapter's first car show on April 27 at the Old Westbury campus. The show drew nearly 200 attendees with 30 vehicles on display, including an electric Tesla car driven by astronaut Greg Olsen (pictured below). Students donated $311 in event proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization dedicated to providing resources for and raising awareness of the needs of wounded U.S. veterans and service members.

"This event was a great opportunity for the NYIT community to gather together with a common interest to share stories and network while also giving back to a great cause and charity," says Anthony Reyes, president of NYIT's SAE chapter.
