NYC First STEM Center Summer Program On Roosevelt Island For Middle School Students - Learn 2 & 3D Design/Fabrication, Laser Cutting, 3D Printers & More

NYC First CEO Michael Zygman reports:

NYC FIRST, one of the largest K-12 STEM education organizations in New York City, runs immersive, hands on robotics and STEM education programs that serve 7,000 students annually. We have been running our programs for nearly 20 years in New York City, and we are proud to have our first STEM Center in the city here on Roosevelt Island.

I wanted to let you know about an opportunity for Roosevelt Islanders that NYC FIRST is hosting this summer at our STEM Center, at 544 Main Street.

We're running three week-long summer courses from July 16 - August 3 for rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders at a discounted price of $200 per week due to the generous support of our donors.

This program is a good opportunity for middle school students to learn about 2D and 3D design and fabrication, as well as physical computing, and to have them learn how to use laser cutters and 3D printers, among a range of other equipment at the STEM Center. You can learn more about our Summer Program here:

For questions from anyone who is interested, please feel free to email us at summer@nycfirst.org

Also, NYC First is:
... seeking Mentors to offer guidance to our students during open hours at the Roosevelt Island location. We are specifically looking volunteers who can offer 1-3 hours of their time each week and are regularly available one day a week (Tuesday - Friday) between 4pm and 7pm.

Responsibilities would include helping to monitor the space while offering your skills to help students with personal projects.
Mr. Zygman described the Roosevelt Island NYC First Stem Center during an Open House last January.
