Friday, August 8 - Friday, August 8, 2014 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (The Great Hall, City University of New York)

CUNY’s Remote Sensing Earth System Institute is hosting the Annual CUNY Summer STEM Research Symposium, to be held on August 2, 2012 in City College’s Great Hall. The Symposium is expected to be attended by nearly 300 Students, research scholars,, faculty, scientists, Program Administrators and invited guests, making it one of the largest events that CREST Institute will host this summer. The Summer Programs are comprised of a unique blend of traditional classroom learning, extensive lab-based hands-on research projects, and “on-field” place-based learning experience designed for students to get a great start to their STEM education. Summer 2012 proved to be the largest and most successful yet, nearly 200 students participated in the NOAA-CREST Summer High School Internship Program (SHIP), NSF-Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), DoEd-Earth System and Environmental Sustainability (ESES), NASA-New York City Research Initiative (NYCRI), NASA Curriculum Improvement Partnership Award for the Integration of Research (CIPAIR), NOAACREST-High School Weather Camp, and The Harris Foundation-Bernard Harris Middle School Camp programs. As the highlight event of the Summer Program, the Symposium will feature poster and oral presentations by summer student interns and participants, and special remarks and presentations by our distinguished guests. The 2012 Summer Symposium Invited Speakers are as follows: Dr. Louisa Koch, the Acting Deputy Under Secretary for Operations at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; Dr. Sonia Feigenbaum, HSI Director, Department of Education; Dr. Mary Lee S. Ledbetter, Program Director in Directorate of Education and Human Resources, Division of Undergraduate Education, National Science Foundation (NSF); Dr. Lenell Allen, National Project Manager of NASA CIPAIR; and Dr. Leland D. Melvin, NASA’s Associate Administrator for Education. The event will kick-off with the welcome and opening remarks by CCNY President Dr. Lisa Coico. The event’s distinguished speakers are dedicated to STEM education and its importance in our global community as well as to the careers of our future scientists in attendance. Thank you to the Symposium Co-Sponsors NASA (NYCRI, CIPAIR, NJSGC and Helio-physics); NSF (LSAMP, REU, MIRTHE and OEDG); DOEd (ESES; CILES).
