Stony Brook University
Building on over twenty years of transformative reform initiatives in STEM learning that have impacted educators at over 500 institutions, the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement (NCSCE), joined Stony Brook University to host the SUNY-Industry Conference and Showcase. The Conference is part of a broader effort to build partnerships advancing collaborative research, education, and professional development projects that will solidify SUNY’s leadership role in advancing science and engineering that supports social good at the local, statewide, national, and global level. Conference themes included the following areas of critical civic and social importance: energy and environment, health, broadening participation in STEM (human resource development), education and the technological workforce), integrating STEM and the arts and humanities, infrastructure development, technology and security, social media, and data science. Special attention will be given to efforts that achieve synergy across sectors (academia, industry, government and NGO’s) and across lines of inquiry (research, education, policy, and project development).
