Meet the Scientists of New York:
More about Scientists of New York
Scientists come from a huge variety of backgrounds. Through Scientists of New York (ScioNY), we hope to change the stereotypical perceptions of what a scientist looks like and highlight the diversity of STEM professionals in NYC. Our featured scientists have traveled from around the globe to explore the vast unknown in laboratories all around New York City.
ScioNY shares valuable and relatable insights with the next generation of scientists. Ebrahim Afshinnekoo said in his interview:
Whether it be science or something else – if you’re truly passionate about what you’re pursuing then you will persevere and end up successful. Failure is an inherent part of growth and should be embraced not feared or avoided.

There is STILL time to nominate your students/mentees for LAB Jumpstart!
LAB Jumpstart is a 14-week after school program that serves under-resourced and minoritized high school students by promoting inquiry-based scientific exploration and facilitating the development of core laboratory and research skills. After successfully completing the program—alongside 15 other like-minded youth and a support team of scientists—students will embark on our 7-week, virtual Summer Science Research Program (SSRP), where they will get to apply their learned skills to specific research tracks.
Students must be nominated by a teacher or other adult who has served in a formal or informal mentorship capacity.
Nominations are due by December 21st, 2020 at 11:59pm ET.
