STEM@SUNY Polytnechnic Institute is a full-year academic program that provides students with a unique senior year experience to explore career options in emerging technologies that will change the world.
The STEM@SUNY Polytnechnic Institute program is housed at the Colleges of Nanoscale Science & Engineering in Albany at the Tech Valley High School building. It utilizes a highly effective program model that is used by New Visions programs throughout New York state.
High school seniors participate in a rich program of project-based instruction, early college and hands-on learning in various advanced manufacturing and research settings. Students enroll in college courses each semester and fulfill 12th grade English and Social Studies requirements for graduation.
The goal is for each student to be exposed to a variety of careers in the emerging technologies and be encouraged to pursue careers in these fields after high school. Students will interact with professionals in science and technology on the SUNY Polytnechnic Institute campus.
Students will be expected to return to their high schools and take a minimum of one course.
