Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE)
This mostly virtual, seven week program includes: a high level, 5-week authentic research experience in participating NYU faculty labs, mentoring in that placement by a graduate or postdoctoral student, a stipend of at least $500 for completing the program, as well as two weeks of workshops, college advisement and other activities geared to preparing ARISE students for the college application process. In the workshops, students will be introduced to the field of scientific ethics, contemporary issues in scientific inquiry, data collection and analysis, research practices, lab safety and more.
With their mentors, ARISE participants will spend the latter five weeks of the program in their labs where they will make practical, substantive contributions to the lab’s research objectives, which span engineering, life sciences, and computer and data sciences. Check out the Research Opportunities section to learn more about the research going on in the 32 ARISE labs and the professors who oversee the work. Learn more.
Science of Smart Cities (SoSC)
Science of Smart Cities (SoSC) introduces middle school students to engineering, science, computer science and technology that make cities more sustainable, efficient and safer. Through hands-on activi
ties, demonstrations and experiments, STEM concepts are integrated showing how those concepts are applied through engineering disciplines in cities today and how they might be applied in cities in the future. Participants not only learn about the scientific method and research practices, SoSC connects participating students to each other, and to college age near-peers, through teamwork and mentorship.

Innovation, Entrepreneurship and the Science of Smart Cities (ieSoSC)
Created as a follow-up experience to our Science of Smart Cities program, and with the support of National Grid, ieSoSC is a 5 week opportunity consisting of STEM instruction and mentoring offered through NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The program will focus on technology and engineering skills, design and prototyping, built around real world ‘smart city’ applications and research. Participants will work with our graduate and undergraduate student experts in increasingly sophisticated programming and engineering projects.
Primarily, but not exclusively, intended for students that previously completed Science of Smart Cities, ieSoSc will show through hands-on projects and activities how to take coding/computer science, engineering and technology skills to another level by applying those skills to advanced smart cities ideas.
