After a successful launch in summer 2013, the NYU Tandon School of Engineering continues to conduct the Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE) program. This selective program is for academically strong, current 10th and 11th grade New York City students with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
This full-time, seven week program includes: college level workshops and seminars, a high level research experience in participating NYU faculty labs, and mentoring in that placement by a graduate or postdoctoral student. In the seminars and workshops, students will be introduced to the scientific method and ethics, data collection and analysis, research practices and lab safety.
With their mentors, ARISE participants will spend the latter five weeks of the program in these placements where they will make practical contributions to their lab’s research objectives, which span engineering, life sciences, and computer and data sciences.
Students will also receive training in presentation and public speaking skills, in collaboration with ARISE’s partners at Irondale Ensemble Project, and give their research findings at the program’s concluding colloquium to NYU faculty and graduate students, their peer ARISE participants, other academic experts, family members and friends.
Through a grant from the Pinkerton Foundation, ARISE is intended to provide an advanced STEM research opportunity to New York City students lacking access to high quality STEM education experiences. Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low – income backgrounds, are strongly encouraged to apply.
