NEW YORK URBAN LEAGUE’S OPERATION STEM DROP

THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS SHIPS THOUSANDS OF COPIES OF NEW YORK URBAN LEAGUE’S A PARENT’S GUIDE TO STEM TO NYC MIDDLE SCHOOLS.

 

New York, NY – – Today we begin Operation STEM DROP where thousands of A Parent’s Guide to STEM guides will be shipped to Middle Schools across NYC and surrounding boroughs. The guides are good for PTA Meetings, school guidance counselors, and to distribute to parents/guardians seeking to support their child’s interest in STEM.  “Resources, like our Parent’s Guide to STEM, are an important part for our support of our young people in science, and mathematics and ensure they are college and career ready,” said Arva Rice, President and CEO of the New York Urban League.

 

“STEM education is critical to ensure that we build a workforce to meet the growing demand for these skills,” said Bill Holiber, President and CEO of the New York Daily News. Not only does this guide provide tips for parents on how to engage their teens in STEM activities, parents and students will learn how to land internships, and other STEM resources in NYC. Find out where the best NYC High Schools for STEM are, the top college majors in STEM, STEM scholarships and more.

 

This guide was created to help dispel common myths, connect STEM to everyday life, and provide a pathway for exploration of the science, technology, engineering and math fields. This guide was published by New York Urban League in partnership with The Daily News, US News & World Report, The City University of New York, the NYC Department of Education, and the NYC Department of Youth & Community Development.  It was made possible with the support of Time Warner Cable, Henry Luce Foundation, Google/Tide Foundation, News Corp, L’Oreal USA and NYC Council Member Inez E. Dickens.
