On April 29, 2009, colleagues and students of scientist and
educator Cecily Selby, Trustee Emerita at NYSCI, gathered at a symposium to honor her legacy by highlighting the important breakthroughs science educators have made—in school and out of school—and to celebrate their passion for the sciences and their successes in communicating that passion to others. These thoughtful leaders, mostly NYU alumni, shared best practices in presenting science in artistic, technological, environmental, meteorological, community, and personal contexts. Their common objective: to open sci-tech literacy and access to jobs and careers in science to all. The report on the symposium is downloadable here.
