Regional News & Events

Greetings from WNY STEM Hub, leading the first cohort of Chief Science Officers in New York State. We are excited about supporting CSOs as they become a voice for STEM learning and student interests in our region.  We believe that when students become advocates and leaders in STEM, they will change their communities for the better.  Launched in 2019-20 in partnership with Siemens, our CSOs are from rural, suburban and urban schools in the Buffalo – Niagara region.

WNY STEM Hub mobilizes our region to develop, nurture and maximize interest in STEM careers through hands-on, one-of-a kind experiences.  Its purpose is to the WNY Community to empower students through life changing STEM experiences – such as the award-winning Hand in Hand, Girls Coding, Career Exploration and Take Flight Space Experiments Programs – to tackle careers in science, technology, engineering and math. It is recognized as a STEM Ecosystem of the STEM Funders Network, a Regional Partner of and a Spaceflight Community Program of the National Center for Earth and Space Education.
