CUNY, NYC DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HOST NEW YORK CITY HIGH SCHOOLS’ SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FAIR, FEBRUARY 2 – 3 AT CCNY

NEW YORK, January 30, 2008 – Approximately 600 future scientists and engineers from high schools across the city will compete in the New York City Science and Engineering Fair, Saturday, February 2 – Sunday, February 3, at the City College of New York.  The competition is co-sponsored by the City University of New York and the New York City Department of Education.

“At a time of great demand for scientists and engineers, it is heartening to see so many students from throughout New York stepping up to the challenge,” said Dr. Selma Botman, CUNY Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost.  “This fair showcases their curiosity, imaginations and analytic skills while providing valuable feedback that can nurture their professional development.”

“New faculty hires, new facilities and increased support from CUNY and other sources are making The City College of New York a hub for scientific and engineering research,” noted Dr. Gregory H. Williams, President of The City College of New York. “It is most fitting that we host this event and we feel honored to do so.”

The public will be able to view the students’ projects 11 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. Sunday, February 3, in The Great Hall of Shepard Hall on the CCNY campus. The judging, which is closed to the public, will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. that day.  Approximately 250 scientists and science professionals have volunteered to serve as judges for the competition.

While the judging is underway, the CCNY Division of Science is hosting a Family Science Day program for contestants’ family members. Eight members of the CCNY science faculty will open their laboratories or conduct demonstrations in the Marshak Science Building. In addition, Dr. Michio Kaku, Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics, whose newest book, Physics of the Impossible, will be released in March, will speak on “Time Travel, Black Holes, Hyperspace and a Theory of Everything.”

A complete schedule of events follows. For more information, please visit: http://collegenow.cuny.edu/sciencefair/prelim/.

The City College of New York campus is located at 138th Street and Convent Avenue in Manhattan. For travel directions, visit http://www1.ccny.cuny.edu/prospective/about/directions.cfm.
