JA and the New York Academy of Sciences Announce Partnership
Yesterday, JA and the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) Global STEM Alliance announced our new partnership and inaugural joint endeavor, the Global Youth STEM Challenge, a series of competitive challenges through which JA students will use STEM skills and business savvy to solve real-world problems.
Phase 1 will engage 2,000 students from ten or more countries in STEM boot camps hosted by NYAS. With additional funding for later phases, the initiative will include a STEM business challenge, student-company development, a virtual incubator, and seed funding. Stay tuned as we report on our progress.
