We would like to share about the New York Academy of Sciences’ Scientist-in-Residence program (SIR), which pairs science mentors with NYC public school educators and supports them in creating and implementing a year-long research project.

SiR is open to graduate students, postdocs, and STEM professionals who are interested in volunteering in a classroom, mentoring students and sharing their passion for the sciences.
