The New York Academy of Sciences is looking for the best and brightest high school students passionate about changing the world through STEM! These programs are completely virtual and students can participate from anywhere in the world.
Students ages 13-17 are being recruited from around the world to participate in pioneering virtual STEM mentoring programs: 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures and The Junior Academy. Accepted students become Young Members of the Academy and gain access to the world’s smartest network! While both programs use online mentoring platforms enabling participants to interact from anywhere in the world, there are a few key elements that make each opportunity unique:
- 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures connects STEM-focused high school girls to dynamic, motivated female mentors during a year-long virtual science education program. Participants gain access to innovative programming focused on developing essential 21st century skills and become part of a strong network of female STEM leaders from around the world!
- The Junior Academy introduces exceptional students to an online community where they gain access to best-in-class STEM resources and work together to solve real-world problems. STEM professionals mentor student teams during 60-day innovation challenges, with multiple challenges a year for participants to choose from.
This is an incredible opportunity – please help in spreading this message to students in your network. Any 13-17 year old with a passion for STEM and proficiency in English can learn more about the programs or start their application here. Applications are due by July 31st, 2020.
