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.

“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.
