TACNY honored for its STEM efforts
Saturday, May 19, 2012 by TACNY Info

The Technology Alliance of Central New York (TACNY) was honored by Partners for Education & Business Inc. (PEB) for its efforts to encourage Central New York students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. The group received the 2012 Outstanding Commitment Award at PEB’s Annual Awards Celebration on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, at the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology

PEB, an affiliate of the Manufacturers Association of Central New York, cites TACNY’s function as a resource for providing connections to TACNY members to respond to requests for career exploration experiences. “TACNY has assisted students and teachers by serving as speakers, hosting job shadows and internships and staffing exhibits at career events,” said PEB Executive Director Joe Vargo. “In addition, TACNY’s outreach to schools, non-profits, and other organizations has become vital in promoting engineering, technology and other STEM-related careers.”

TACNY is involved in other efforts to increase awareness and education about STEM careers. Once a month during the school year, the nonprofit hosts TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique, a program for middle-school students founded in 2005 that features discussions between scientists and students about topics in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and seeks to encourage students to consider careers in these areas. And once a year since 1989, TACNY has honored teachers who who excel in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education and outreach with colleagues in these areas with its Outstanding Teacher Awards. The teacher award includes a check for $1,000.
