STEM Expo Plaza Party For Harlem Kids At City College Of New York

City College of New York reports that many parents are concerned their children’s school doesn’t have an emphasis on science. Or that the way science is taught is too boring to engage their kids. One way to get kids interested in science is to show them experiments that make them ask “how did you do that”?

This Sunday, May 20, 2018, from 12-5 pm, kids from the Harlem community (and their parents) can get psyched about science at the STEM Expo Plaza party at the Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York at 259 Convent Avenue and 140th Street in Harlem, NY.

CCNY engineering and computer science student clubs will showcase some of the mind blowing work they’ve done this year, including a concrete canoe, a blazing fast Chem-E-Car, and a “computer garden” that grows food without soil or harmful chemicals.

The event is open and free to the public and features interactive STEM exhibits, vendors, music and food. It is offered on day two of Harlem STEM Weekend and is hosted by the Grove School in partnership with District Five and Harlem Renaissance Education Pipeline (HREP).

Grove School Dean Gilda Barabino looks forward to welcoming kids and parents, saying “So much about what we do at the Grove School remains a mystery to our neighbors. On Sunday, we will open our doors to the Harlem Community to demystify what it is we do and to also cultivate the natural curiosity of community’s school aged children—some, our future students. This will be just one of many activities to come in which we will engage and partner with the community.”
