I am looking for a handful of women to help out with a workshop that I am running at the Tech Savvy Conference at TC3 on April 1st. 

The Tech Savvy conference ( ) is a daylong conference for girls in sixth through ninth grades as well as for parents/guardians/teachers/mentors.  The conference is designed to encourage girls to pursue a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM).

A little bit about the workshop and the time commitment.  You will be required to be at TC3 from approximately 11am-2:00pm on April 1st.  The workshop itself will be focused on genetically modified organisms and techniques.  You will assist the participants with microscope use and other hands on activities. 

Please email me directly ( if you would like to participate or if you have any questions.


Take care,

The H&S application materials and additional information regarding ICNYC are available online.  The application to attend the Fall 2017 program is Friday, March 24th at 4:00pm.
The application requires signatures from the student, a parent/guardian, and their faculty advisor. Also required is a recommendation from the faculty member who will serve as the student’s faculty sponsor for their internship experience(s) or independent study, fieldwork, or research opportunity. H&S students are required to complete at least 3 credits of internship or independent study while in NYC.
