ATTENTION: NYU Hosts BEST/Career Exploration Program for High School Students.

The Building Excellence in Science and Technology Program (BEST)is an innovative pre-college enrichment program based at New York University for talented high school students that encourages the presence of historically under-represented groups in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM careers).

NYU's summer Career Exploration Program will operate Monday through Thursday, July 6– July 29, from 9:30am to 3:00pm. During this time, students will not only have the unique opportunity to investigate careers that appeal to their interest, but they will also be able to develop the skills necessary to excel in these professions as well.

The summer program is designed to deliver instruction through the scope of four focused career cohorts: Pre-Law, Business and Accounting, Pre-Medicine & Health, and Engineering. All coursework is designed to teach students the practical applications of the skills and concepts in mathematics and critical thinking (writing and reading) as they relate to a student’s desired career field. In addition, students will be able to participate in trips, career panels, and independent study to showcase what they have learned about their respectivecareer cohorts.

This is a unique opportunity for your child to take the preliminary steps in bringing his or her future career goals into fruition. There is no cost to participate in the program, trips, and activities; however, there is an optional lunch fee of $175 for the duration of the program, which is payable by check or money order to New York University. If you are interested in the Career Exploration Program, please complete and fax the application to (212) 995-4193. All applications and supporting documents are due no later than orientation on Thursday, July 1, 2010 at 5:30pm– 7pm. Feel free to contact (212) 992-9463 with any questions that you may have.
