    DR. DANIELLE MERFELD, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for General Electric's Global Renewable Energy Division will discuss HOW OUR CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE LOOKS TO AN INDUSTRY LEADER.

    Previous seminars in this series have given us a perspective from elected officials and regulators at the federal and state levels. But innovations from industry leaders like General Electric and the market for clean energy will, arguably, play an even greater role. Dr. Merfeld will help us understand where GE sees the future - our future.

    Just in time for March Madness...Pub Science is back with Dr. John Drazan. Dr. Drazan combines his passions for Physics and his love of basketball to engage his audience. Dr. Drazan received his doctorate in biomedical engineering at RPI where he continues his research and is an instructor. In addition to RPI, Dr. Drazan is the STEM director for 4th Family Inc., which is an outreach organization aimed at using sports to connect urban youth to opportunities in STEM. Please join us at Brown’s Brewing Company in Troy, NY on February 27th from 6pm-8pm.

    The Science Teachers Association of New York State - Eastern Section presents a special members only professional development event: Rendezvous with a Comet Challenger Simulation at miSci on March 6th, 5 - 8 pm. Teachers will become students and embark on a mission to explore a comet that is approaching Earth’s orbit! Students will complete the assembly of a probe and launch it to rendezvous with the comet while using scientific, decision-making, problem solving, communication, and teamwork skills to grapple with unexpected objects in the solar system.

    Based on NASA astronaut training, the Challenger Learning Center of the Capital Region at miSci allows participants to be part of a simulated mission to space in an innovative learning environment. Visitors become part of a crew of engineers and scientists on-board the space-craft. Like NASA astronauts, scientists, and engineers, visitors are assigned essential tasks and conduct critical experiments that they must execute for mission success.

    The evening will begin at 5 pm with light appetizers, prior to the start of the simulation at 5:30 pm. A generous benefactor has allowed us to provide this professional development event at the greatly reduced rate of $6 per member. 3 CTLE credits will be provided for your participation.  Space is limited, so sign up today!

    miSci is located at: 15 Nott Terrace Heights, Schenectady, NY 12308

    • Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th St, Troy, NY 12180

    The major goal of science fairs is to motivate and stimulate students, who have a special interest and talent in the STEM discipline to pursue STEM careers. By doing science research, they learn the nature of science. Science fairs provide a vehicle by which talented science, mathematic and engineering students can be recognized just as athletes are recognized in sporting events.

    This is the 28th year that Rensselaer is hosting and sponsoring the Greater Capital Region Science and Engineering Fair, an affiliate of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and the STANYS Science Congress.

    The STANYS State Science Congress is sponsored by the Science Teachers Association of New York State (STANYS). Top projects from the Senior Division (grades 9–12) will be chosen to compete in the Intel ISEF and the STANYS State Science Congress. Top projects from the Junior Division (grades 6-8) will be chosen to compete in the STANYS State Science Congress and the Broadcom Masters Competition.

    • 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Colonie Central High School, 1 Raider Blvd, Albany, NY 12205

    “Lab Day” is an opportunity for STEM educators to share their most exciting laboratory based activities with their colleagues. The Capital Region Master Teachers, working in conjunction with STANYS, will offer workshops that combine hands-on with minds-on. The professional development offered by Lab Day has become even more important with New York State adopting their version of the Next Generation Science Standards. These standards place a heavy emphasis on inquiry or science practices. Actual laboratory experiences are the best way to acquire competency with these science practices.

    Join the Master Teachers and STANYS as we share the best of these laboratory experiences and prepare for the future of science education in New York State. These workshops will carry CTLE credit. The event will feature a Keynote speaker, coffee and bagels in the morning, and a working lunch during the Tech-Slam event. Participants will receive an email regarding workshop choices as the date approaches.

    Facilitator: NY State Master Teachers - Chemistry PLT 

    Fee: None. Sponsored by NY Master Teacher Program-Capital Region. Registration required.
