STEME Education Showcase

SOF seniors presented their projects at the event called “STEME Education Showcase”, hosted by NYU & the Sci-Ed Innovators, as part of the World Science Festival happening in NYC. Teachers and their students were invited to present a science project from their class that would excite other students. The hope was to encourage more students into exploring science-related fields. Our students presented their work with Arduinos. Over the course of two months, seniors were taught the basic principles of programming and circuitry. They then were introduced to the Arduino, and through the use of small tasks, figured out how to use it to control simple sensors and actuators. For their final project, they had to design a simple robotic system that produced some sort of response to a reading from a sensor. They presented their projects to festival goers at NYU last weekend. Below is a sample of their work.
