OLD WESTBURY, NY (01/07/2020)-- During a recent elementary school visit to the New York Institute of Technology Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center(ETIC), Chase Lauer of Voorhees was among the university's students who helped children to become computer scientists and engineers for a day.
Lauer, who is studying Information Technology, and fellow NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences students joined Michael Nizich, Ph.D., ETIC director, in leading fifth-graders from Idle Hour Elementary School (Oakdale, N.Y.) in hands-on STEM activities that introduced them to emerging technologies and strategic problem-solving. The college students helped children draw up ideas to meet United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and then assisted the fifth-graders in prototyping their concepts using pipe cleaners, Legos, and erector sets. New York Tech students also demonstrated and helped the children to experiment with technology such as robotics, mixed reality, computer-aided design (CAD), 3D printing, video game design, and computer simulations. The children also learned about potential careers in engineering fields, including Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Cybersecurity.
