|INTRODUCTION TO THE SEA PROGRAM
|The purpose of the Summer Energy Academy is to assist in meeting the global energy challenge. In order to prevent an impending energy crisis it is imperative that we expose students to the concepts of energy and STEM disciplines at an early age, therefore laying the foundation for future scientist and engineers to develop the needed technology to reduce and change how we consume energy.
|2016 SEA PROGRAM
|The American Association of Blacks in Energy, NY Metro Chapter (AABE-NYMAC) is proud to announce the 2016 Summer Energy Academy hosted by Bedford Academy. The purpose of the Academy is to introduce our young people to the possibilities that exist in the energy industry when they study science, engineering and technology.
The SEA Program consists of an intense curriculum of interactive lectures, presentations, class assignments, field trips and a research project focusing on sustainable energy. Over six weeks, students will discover ways to reduce their own and New York City’s energy consumption while applying their knowledge and research to an assigned project.
SEA students (grades 6-9) are selected based on a review of their academics, state exam scores, a brief essay and interview. There is no cost to attend the Academy with the exception of a $300 registration fee once the student is accepted into the program. If you are interested in attending, please complete and return the attached application and all supporting documents by June 6th, 2016 to the SEA Application Review Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of the completed application, an interview will be scheduled for each student.
