NYCCSSE offers after school programs in aviation, engineering, and robotics. All programs are run in partnership with a school. If you are interested in coordinating a program, contact Kristen Staffaroni at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.608.6164 x113.
Utilizing the facilities at the NYCCSSE’s experiential Aerospace Education Laboratory (AEL) and working with a licensed pilot, high school students will be introduced to and learn about the world of aviation through experimentation, remote control, and flight simulation. Students will also be introduced to careers in the field of aviation via a guided tour of a local aviation college. This program runs 10 weeks including the trip to the college, which takes place during the school day and has a capacity of 12 students.
CyberPatriots is the premiere national high school cyber defense competition created by the Air Force Association to inspire high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other STEM disciplines. Students learn about the inner workings of a computer and develop skills to defend computers from cyber attacks. They then compete against other high school students around the country to apply these skills by protecting mock computers in a series of simulated cyber attacks. The team meets once a week starting in September.
