Irondale’s STEM to STEAM program --led by some of New York’s finest teaching artists--uses the skills of theatrical improvisation to help science, technology, engineering and mathematics students become comfortable presenting their academic research in compelling, engaging ways. They learn to work with their audiences and deliver the story of their research. Students in STEM to STEAM workshops practice communicating what they know and how they know it, ensuring that our future scientific leaders are able to clearly explain what their work means and why it's important.
We are proud to partner with New York City's most exciting research institutions - NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, Wave Hill, Rockefeller University, Mount Sinai’s Center for Excellence in Youth Education, CUNY’s Remote Sensing of the Earth Science and Technology Institute, DNA Learning Center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, American Museum of Natural History, Columbia University’s Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, City College of New York, Hypothekids, Genspace, Baruch College, and Brooklyn College.Through these partnerships, we are currently reaching over 600 students annually. Many of our partner programs are members of the NYC Science Research and Mentoring Consortium.
