New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development will open the S. Jhumki Basu STEME Education and Research Center with a demonstration featuring a carbon footprint app, a presentation highlighting NYU’s research on the Higgs Boson, and more on Wed., Feb. 5, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the center’s 239 Greene Street location (Fourth Floor, between W. 4th Street and Washington Place).

The Basu STEME Education and Research Center is a 6,000-square-foot, technology-rich environment that will serve as a classroom, research laboratory, and collaborative space for STEME (science, technology, education, mathematics, and environmental) educators at all phases of their careers.

The facility will be a hub for educators, researchers, and STEME faculty from NYU Steinhardt as well as other NYU faculty working in these fields. The center aims to engage New York City public school partners, community organizations, and programs in education that are committed to changing students’ lives through STEME education.

The presentations that mark the opening will illustrate the nature and promise of the research and advancement that the center seeks to inspire.

The center is named in honor of Dr. Sreyashi Jhumki Basu, a member of NYU Steinhardt’s science education faculty who passed away in December 2008 at the age of 31 after a bout with cancer.

Reporters interested in attending any event must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
