STEM Diversity Summit at Farmingdale State College

Connecting K-12, higher education, community and workforce

February 23, 2013


Farmingdale State College has a long history – more than 100 years – of educating students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. It is only fitting that the college continue to take a leadership role in working with educators, as well as business and community leaders to inspire students to seek careers in these disciplines.

The STEM Diversity Summit will be held at Farmingdale State College on Tuesday, March 19 from 8:00 am - 1:30 pm in Roosevelt Hall. There is no fee for the summit but registration is requested through this link: https://www.farmingdale.edu/stem/.

The 2013 STEM Diversity Summit will bring together leaders from business, education, government and non-profit organizations to understand recent developments, learn from others at the state and national level, and engage in shaping solutions relevant to our region.

The STEM Diversity Summit, in alliance with Long Island STEP/CSTEP, will continue to inspire K-12, higher education, business and industry in exploring innovation to strengthen STEM teaching and learning in the 21st century.

Best practices and research exhibits in STEM will be featured by public school students in grades 8-12, as well as presentations on sustainable energy technologies and biotechnologies by national, regional, and local businesses. The Summit is expected to draw over 500 attendees from industry, education and community. Distinguished national and local speakers will be featured. Generous business and organizational sponsors include Verizon, United Way, the Bank of America, North Shore –LIH Health System and the Farmingdale College Foundation.
