Congrats to Shabarack Yassim, Kyarah Rodriguez & Justin Rodriguez for attending Advocacy Day New York Student Alliance
The students visited the Legislator's Office building in Albany and met Queens Senator Tobi Stavisky, Director of External Relations Scarlette Cho and Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan's assistant. Students expressed their appreciation for the support they give after school programs like LPP.
Dr. Franca Ferrara supervised college students in her speech classes to deliver to Project PRIZE high school and middle school students a lecture on “Note Taking"
Edison Agudo and Messan Adelan, Project PRIZE staff, assisted the students during the session.
This panel discussion was part of a Saturday program made possible by a grant that the Office of Pre-College, Continuing Education & Workforce Development was awarded this past fall. The grant, called Con Edison presents Exploring STEM Careers, exposes middle and high school students to the ins and outs of conducting academic research as well as helping them to understand how STEM is everywhere and shapes their everyday experiences.
In the Saturday class, students learned the ins and outs of conducting academic research: from development of a research question to data analysis. Students designed and executed fun, interesting and scientifically relevant research projects in the fields of microbiology, ecology, physics and chemistry. In addition, students were introduced to a number of valuable methods and developed writing skill sets for academic and professional investigations of scientific phenomena.
