Bronx, NY, May 5th, 2023 -- The Bronx Community School District 9 in partnership with 21stCentEd and the New York Yankees will be hosting the 2023 STEM Expo at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, May 6th at 9:00 a.m. This event, which includes approximately 500 students who are attending as a reward for their academic achievement and participation in STEM-oriented programs, is one of many initiatives the district has planned to prepare their students to be active participants in an evolving future workforce.

The event will allow patrons to experience hands-on activities and demonstrations related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning and is being conducted with support from STEM NOLA. City and State elected officials have been invited, including New York State Senator Luis R. Sepúlveda and New York City Department of Education Chancellor David C. Banks, who are slated to give remarks during the Opening Ceremony.

This year’s event will feature approximately 80 Science projects presented by the Bronx’s own District 9 students from across grade levels. The 2009 World Series Trophy will also be on display for pictures. Since the inception of the STEM Expo, STEM has flourished in the Bronx. Student participation in this program is on pace to reach its highest this year.

Science projects will be on display on Yankee Stadium’s Field Level Concourse, and STEM activities and demonstrations will take place in Yankee Stadium’s Great Hall.

“Investing in our students is the key to seeing transformation in our community and we look forward to furthering our efforts of cultivating a STEM environment that makes a lasting impact.” said Marlon Lindsay, Founder/ CEO of 21stCentEd. “We are partnering with District 9 to future-proof all students and educators through Comprehensive STEMTM early, often, and everywhere.”
