The New York State Department of Labor has produced a database of science, technology, engineering and mathematics resources for school-aged children and their teachers as part of their CareerZone web site. The resource called Innovate for Teens is located at:
and contains hundreds of listings of workshops, summer camps, internships, and games and activities appropriate to various ages. There are also links to the CareerZone job descriptions of the many occupations which use science, technology, and mathematics skills.
The Teacher materials include externships and sources for professional development for math and science teachers, as well as lesson plans and curriculum enhancement programs.
This web site is constantly being updated, so check back often. Also, if you know of any workshops, camps or internships in your area that we have missed and that have a web site (this database is strictly web-based), please let me know and I will pass the information along to the appropriate staff. You can also reach the CareerZone team by phone at 518-457-4234 or by e-mail at email@example.com .
