Free Science and Engineering Programs for NYC Students

Screen Shot 2014 02 25 at 12 53 29 PM

Here’s a great list of free after-school and summer programs open to NYC Students and their families – including some paid internships! Highlights include SEEK, a 3 week summer program for young engineers, ARISE (Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering) at NYU, and many more! From insideschools.org.

New York City offers children and teens a wide range of after-school and summer activities–from paid museum internships to free science research programs. The free and low cost programs listed here are a great way to explore new interests, get extra support, and supplement what is being taught during the school day. This list is not exhaustive, and we welcome your feedback and additions. Send your suggestions to [email protected]

New York City has a wealth of opportunities for students who are looking to pursue their interest in science outside of the classroom.

Science can help a child learn new words, sharpen observational skills and re-engage a disinterested learner. Find ways to get your child outside or working in a lab in the summer. From environmental science to engineering or technology, there is a science program for every student.
