SUNY sees education in New York State as a pipeline that extends from birth to retirement years—and finds ways to close the gaps that impede success.
SUNY Canton hosted a number of youth-focused learning workshops over the past year to encourage children to seek careers in STEM fields including:
- An open house to introduce the College’s STEM curricula to pre-college students. Activities included tours, an engineering design competition, and interactive demonstrations.
- Summer activities such as Camp Invention and Edge on Science’s rocket, bridge and catapult camps help expose children to STEM fields at an early age.
- The annual Women in Engineering Day allowed girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades participate in workshops designed to introduce them to careers in engineering.
