NOAA CREST Day to be held April 19th
Please join us as we celebrate the 11th Annual NOAA-CREST Day to be held on Thursday, April 19th, 2012 in the City College of New York’s Steinman Hall. CREST Day promises again to be great success in promoting and inspiring STEM education to the next generation of scientists and engineers. Since its inception in 2001, NOAA CREST Day has represented a significant environmental literacy and outreach event for the public and also serves as an important student recruitment opportunity by showcasing the research and opportunities for future students to pursue an education in remote sensing, climate, weather & atmosphere, water resources & land process or ocean and coastal waters, all within the CREST Institute family of programs.
As a CUNY Institute, CREST is pleased to provide a fun-filled and informative day for anyone interested in coastal, atmospheric and hydrologic sciences. Invited guest speakers include Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Environmental Observation and Prediction and NOAA Deputy Administrator; CUNY Vice Chancellor of Research Dr. Gillian Small, CCNY President Dr. Lisa S. Coico, and CCNY Provost Dr. Martin Moskovits. CREST members, including Faculty and students will also make presentations about their cutting edge research and the opportunities available to prospective CREST students.
CREST is also participating in CCNY’s celebration of Earth Day, 2012, a campus-wide event featuring music, distinguished speakers, and activities illustrating CCNY’s commitment to sustainability.
